: Rough Justice: The Case of the Missing Meal

The last in the series
A young girl lay dead in a Scottish glen. She had been stabbed repeatedly. The police searched for her killer but could find no clues, no motive. Then a man called George Beattie said that he had been in the glen on the night she died. As the police questioned him he told them in detail how the crime had been committed. His story seemed to fit the facts. Beattie was charged with her murder, convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment. Today, ten years later, he's still in jail. But was Beattie the attacker or did he simply talk himself into a murder charge?
Now, after a year's investigation, Rough Justice has produced new evidence revealing that Beattie had no time to commit the murder; that he had no motive; and that the girl herself died much later that night, long after Beattie had left the glen. Is George Beattie serving life for a crime he did not commit? Reporter Martin Young

: The Lost Babies

A report by Esther Rantzen
When a baby dies at birth or in the first few days of life, all too often the memories of that baby are lost completely. He is taken from his parents before they can see him, to save them distress, buried in an unmarked grave, unnamed on a death certificate, never photographed. Worst of all, friends and family avoid talking about him. We try to protect parents by pretending the tragedy has not happened. But many parents would welcome the opportunity to see, hold and mourn their babies openly. Experts in the field believe we must change our attitude to save these parents even greater hurt. In this documentary parents and professionals talk about their own experiences, to try to break down the wall of silence surrounding the lost babies.

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.
