The Boys on B Wing
How is it that every year
1,500 teenage boys - all 16 years old or younger - can be locked up in British prisons, two to a cell, 20 hours a day, on remand sometimes for offences as trivial as absconding and car theft?
Reporter David Lomax and a Panorama crew have been allowed to visit B Wing in Hull prison, where, in cells without windows or toilets,
15- and 16-year-old boys have often been waiting months for their cases to be heard.
Fourteen years ago, a Parliamentary Committee recommended that the holding on remand of children in adult prisons should cease forthwith.
Why hasn't it happened?
Would an increase in 'secure units' like Aycliffe in Co Durham or Eastmoor in Leeds be a more humane response to our juvenile criminals and make them less likely to re-offend? Or do the boys on B Wing deserve everything they get? Producer


Reporter: David Lomax

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.
