: Inside Story Special: Chappaquiddick

Twenty-five years ago this week, a car belonging to Senator
Edward Kennedy was found upturned in water by a bridge on Chappaquiddick Island. Inside was the body of Mary Jo Kopechne. Kennedy's behaviour after the crash was evasive and secretive and many theories have been put forward about his involvement with her death. It is still unclear what really happened but the consensus is that there was a cover-up. Certainly it was the end of Edward Kennedy 's presidential ambitions.
John Edginton 's film reopens the investigation into America's most famous traffic fatality. For the first time Rosemary Keough Redmond (one of the so called "Boiler Room girls" who worked on the campaign trail for Edward Kennedy 's brother, Bobby) and Dun Gifford (Edward Kennedy 's aide) talk about the events surrounding Kopechne's death. Crash experts brought in to examine the scene of the accident agree that Kennedy's account of the accident Is preposterous and suggest a different version of events.
Ultimately, however, it is the viewer who must decide whether
Kennedy was telling the truth or whether his story was merely an exercise in damage limitation. Executive producer Steve Hewlett An Otmoor production for BBCtv

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.
