: Inside Story

Rector versus Clinton - the Killer and the Candidate
During the presidential primaries in 1992, would-be Democratic candidate Bill Clinton faced an agonising decision as Governor of Arkansas. A convicted killer named Rickey Ray Rector was languishingon death row in Clinton's own state awaiting execution, while pressure mounted to commute the sentence on the grounds that Rector was mentally unfit to receive the death sentence.
Clinton was torn between his liberal sympathies and his need, as a politician, to take a tough stance on law and order.
News footage, eye-witness interviews, and analysis from Clinton's supporters and opponents re-create a controversial episode in last year's campaign that ended with Clinton in the White House and Rector dead.
To the end, Rector had no understanding of his fate.
Effectively lobotomised after firing a gun into his own head, the day before his execution he said he would vote for Clinton.
Last programme in the series. Director Christopher Olgiati
Executive producer Steve Hewlett

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.
