: Square Mile of Murder

A dramatised reconstruction of four famous Scottish murder cases which took place within a square mile of the city of Glasgow.
Based on the book by JACK HOUSE 3: A Kiss, a Fond Embrace (1) by JOAN LINGARD with Gerda Stevenson (above) as Madeleine Smith
Lex Van Delden (above) as Emile L'Angelier and Born before her time, Madeleine Smith had all the profound physical passion supposed at that time not to exist in a ' 'nice' woman. When in 1855 Madeleine, daughter of an eminent architect, met Pierre Emile L'Angelier, an impoverished French clerk, their romance became one of the scandals of the time and ended as one of the most famous murder cases in the world.

: Uncle Sam's Backyard: 2: Jamaica: Socialism or Bust?

A four-part series about American power, and challenges to it, in the Caribbean area.
'There is just no point if everybody is going to compromise every principle they believe in merely because some big neighbour might get vexed.' (Michael Manley, Prime Minister of Jamaica)
In 1974 Michael Manley proclaimed his government socialist. Henceforth, Jamaica would be a model for the Third World, despite the profound disapproval of the United States.
Six years later, the country is bankrupt. The factories are closed, the supermarket shelves empty, foreign currency reserves exhausted. The International Monetary Fund and foreign banks won't help unless Manley changes direction. He himself faces defeat by his pro-American opponents in elections later this year, already heralded by a wave of political killings.
Did the United States, as Manley claims, 'destabilise' Jamaica's economy? Or have his own policies and his alliance with Cuba's Castro led the island to bankruptcy and the brink of a communist take-over? Bernard Falk reports.

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.

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.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
