: Panorama

presented by Fred Emery Justice Under Fire
The Brighton bombing again revealed the murderous tactics of the IRA. Unlike them, security forces in Ulster are required to combat terrorism from within the law. But the Nationalist minority has become alienated from them. It's an issue which is high on the agenda of this month's Anglo-Irish summit. The most serious allegation by Nationalist politicians is of a 'shoot to kill' policy by police and army.

When a sinister Vietnamese businessman is murdered in his Manhattan office one night, Daryll Deever , the building's janitor, and his oddball friend Aldo are both interrogated by the police. In a television interview Daryll claims to know something about the killing in order to hold the attention of the glamorous reporter assigned to cover the crime. But their relationship places their lives in jeopardy as both the victim's henchmen and the killer get on their trail. William Hurt gives an impressive performance as the solitary night janitor trapped in a deadly game of murder and intrigue.

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.
