In the summer of 1976, Vince Pinner met Penny Warrender at a Rolling Stones concert in Hyde Park. After a two-year love-hate relationship, they planned to get married, but two days before the wedding Vince hopped on his motorbike and roared off into the sunset, leaving the broken-hearted Penny to pick up the crumbs of the uncut wedding cake. We now meet them five years later.

: Rough Justice Report

First of four programmes
Two years ago, Rough Justice presented its investigation into three cases of murder, revealing extensive evidence that those convicted were innocent.
A Preston housewife was jailed for stabbing to death her teenage son, but forensic evidence pointed to a homosexual bondage murder. A South Shields man was convicted of killing a young girl on the evidence of a jumper, which the programme proved was not hers. A Scotsman was imprisoned for murdering a young woman despite having a clear alibi.
The issue of miscarriages of justice has provoked growing debate in public and parliament, and petitions by eminent lawyers have led to all three cases being officially investigated at the highest level. As a prelude to a new series of investigations Rough Justice reports on what has happened to the convicted people since the last series.

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.
