Children Who Kill
The recent murder of Liverpool toddler Jamie Bulger , allegedly by two 10-year-olds, shocked the world. As concern grows about juvenile crime, this film goes behind the locked doors of the Aycliffe Centre for Children to discover what happens to Britain's most dangerous children.
Surrounded by cuddly toys and affectionate staff, most have committed crimes which, had they been adults, would have attracted sentences of 14 years or more. Inside Story focuses on a handful of the children whose crimes range from armed robbery to murder. Director Joanna Clinton Davis

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.
