: Crimewatch File: Armed and Dangerous

Sue Cook presents this reconstruction of a criminal investigation into a string of brutal armed robberies, solved with the help of Crimewatch UK. The raiders targetted banks, post offices and other businesses in a series of raids, taping up and handcuffing their victims.

Operation Mackenzie, launched by the Surrey Police, brought together seven UK police forces, Interpol, the Spanish judicial authorities and Crimewatch viewers. Before the case was brought to its conclusion members of the investigating team had been savaged by a pit bull terrier, conducted an unsuccessful armed raid on a false address and had lost track of a suspect during a car chase in south London.

Producer: Caroline Ross-Pirie

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.
