: Blasphemy at the Old Bailey

An Everyman Special
' If this is not blasphemy, nothing is! ' (JOHN SMYTH ,
Counsel for the Prosecution)
' Must we have all our controversy limited to what would be acceptable conversation on the vicarage lawn? ' (JOHN MORTIMER , QC,
Counsel for the Defence)
Last summer saw the first trial for blasphemy in this country for over half a century. Begun by Mary Whitehouse against the homosexual newspaper Gay News, it ended in a conviction, heavy fines and a suspended prison sentence for the editor. The appeal has just been heard. Was this prosecution an attack on free speech? Or was it a necessary defence of the principle that, even in a permissive society, some things must remain sacred? This dramatised documentary reconstructs this historic trial, and explores the issues it raises. with NORMAN RUTHERFORD
JOHN BEARDMORE
CHRIS SANDERS , PETER MACHIN
Peter France questions the people on both sides including Mary Whitehouse and Denis Lemon , Editor, Gay News, about their actions and reactions during the case.
An advance in the technique of showing the public the essential facts of a criminal trial. (LAW SOCIETY GAZETTE) The tension was inescapably real. Peter Machin enacted with uncanny closeness ... the controlled apprehension of Denis Lemon waiting in the dock.
(GAY NEWS)
It worked marvellously, presenting the core of the arguments in austere and riveting style. (THE times)

: The British Connection?

Twelve films from different parts of the UK which explore some of the complexities of people's sense of identity.
3: The Shankill Road
The Shankill Road -both a street and an area - was once synonymous with Loyalism, a byword, even in Belfast. From top to bottom the road was solidly unionist and monarchist and no outsiders disturbed the coherence of the community. But bulldozers are levelling the little streets, the people are moving out. Can the spirit of the Shankill survive the death of its home? And what happens to those loyalties when the actual fabric of the road disappears?

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.
