Who Really Killed Cock Robin ? Narrated by David Attenborough
The scene - the beautiful gardens of an English manor house. The time - early spring. By the side of a fountain lies a body.... -
The body is that of a robin, killed by a rival. Murder and incest, landgrabbing and seduction are all part of the everyday story of the Christmas card robin.
But this year the real-life robin drama has a twist in its tail that may well be unique. Can the story still have a happy ending?

: Crimewatch UK

with Sue Cook and Nick Ross Three people died in a fire at a house in Northampton.
Police now know it was arson and are hoping a viewer may recognise the distinctive car seen near the scene of the crime. In Salisbury a gang used specialist drilling equipment in a quarter of a million pound robbery of a post office. Several witnesses may not have realised they saw a crime in progress and could supply crucial clues.
And the tragic murder of 84-year-old Ivy Batten at her home near Honiton in Devon. A pair of gloves and other clues left behind could prompt viewers to lead police to her killer.
Detectives from around the country will be waiting for your call to the Crimewatch studio and police officers Helen Phelps and David Hatcher will report for the Incident Desk.
If you can help, call Crimewatch UK on [number removed]any time from 9 30pm until midnight. Studio director pieter MORPURGO Producer PETER GRIMSDALE Editor RICHIE COGAN

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.
