: Rough Justice

November 1986: it is just after midday on a Sunday afternoon in north London and a Swedish tourist is raped as she searches for a cab to take her back to her hotel. A year later,
34-year-old Sammy Davis is convicted of the attack and sentenced to six years in prison. The conviction seemed a foregone conclusion: if the rape happened at the cab office which the woman identified, then the assailant had to be Davis. But did the rape happen at this cab office?
After more than six months' investigation, the Rough
Justice team has unearthed evidence not available to the court at the time.
It suggests that Davis's conviction was based on suspect premises. With David Jessel.
Assistant producer Bill Eagles Producer Steve Haywood

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.
