: Detective: Crime of Passion

by Colin Morris
A crime series
This week: Glynn Edwards as Det.-Chief Inspector Dew in Crime of Passion
Also starring Bernard Hepton, Marion Diamond and Pauline Delany

The story of Dr. Crippen has the fascination of real-life drama which far exceeds in macabre fantasy much fictional crime writing. Colin Morris, who is well known for his documentary dramas and his plays, has given here a study of Crippen and his crime which reveals no new facts, but a great deal of the emotional background to the murder of Belle Elmore.
There is an intense drama provided by the parts that chance and coincidence play in the story and in the steps that lead Dew, the detective, firstly to suspicion of murder and eventually to the certainty of the crime and the arrest of the fugitive doctor.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.
