: Crimewatch UK

The programme which asks you the viewer to turn crimefighter. with Nick Ross and Sue Cook You will see dramatic reconstructions of recent crimes - the police provide the evidence to date, you could provide the leads they need. This month, the minicab murders near Heathrow
Airport; within six months two cab-drivers were stabbed to death apparently for the sake of a few pounds. And the arsonist in the north east who's struck at two historic churches. There's a progress report on the new leads resulting from viewers' calls about last month's cases.
Sue Cook and Nick Ross will be waiting for your call.
Police officers David Hatcher and Helen Phelps report on the latest crime news from the Incident Desk. Backing them up, investigating officers man banks of telephone lines, and local police forces round the country will be standing by to act on information received. You may think your recollection is unimportant - but it could be the clue that solves the crime.
If you can help, call the Crimewatch number, [number removed] from 9.25 till the end of the evening.

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.

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.
