: Rough Justice-Report

Eighteen months ago Rough Justice presented three cases, two of murder, one of sexual assault, where it seemed possible that men had been convicted for crimes they had not committed. Two of the programmes suggested that the real murderers had escaped justice. The third showed the agonising situation of a man who will not be released until he confesses to a crime he maintains he did not commit.
The three programmes produced questions in the House of Lords and in the Commons. A Select Committee of MPs debated the cases and recommended changes in legal procedure.
As a prelude to a new series of three programmes on further possible miscarriages of justice, the Rough Justice team looks back on the last series and reports what has happened to the convicted men concerned. Reporter Martin Young

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.
