: Crimewatch UK

Back after a summer break, the monthly programme that solves crime by enlisting the help of the viewing public enters its tenth year. The first programme reports on a 67-year-old woman and her
64-year-old husband who were found dead at their farmhouse home near Llanharry,Mid-Glamorgan in July. Both had been killed by a single shot to the head. Crimewatch reconstructs the couple's last day and asks what could be the possible motive for the murder of this quiet couple.
Also this month, a young woman gives her account of the rape which nearly led to her death. She was attacked by a man as she walked home from a riding stables on a July afternoon in Darlington,County Durham. Police are linking the attack with another incident in which a woman reported being spied on as she changed after a game of squash. And there's a security video from a raid on a Halifax jewellers, where the armed robbers got away on a 1,000cc motorbike. Presented by Nick Ross and Sue Cook.

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.
