Two unsolved murder cases feature in this month's edition of the crime-solving programme - the seemingly motiveless killing of two dog-breeders, and the mystery death of a man who went missing in 1993. Presented by Nick Ross and Jill Dando. Call free on [number removed], or e-mail: [address removed] with information. Crimewatch UK Update is at 11.35pm. See today's choices. (Digital widescreen)

Crimewatch UK
10.00pm BBC1 Two murder inquiries are spotlighted in this month's edition and both of them are mysteries that Nick Ross and Jill Dando are hoping viewers will be able to solve.
Mystery number one involves Stephen Varah, who disappeared from his home in Grimsby in 1993 and, apart from a driver who gave him a lift near Lincoln, has not been seen since. However, a body wearing Varah's clothes was found in a ditch off the A1 near Peterborough last October.
The second appeal is for help solving the murder of 79-year-old Constance Sheridan and her 45-year-old daughter Janice. They were found stabbed to death in their isolated cottage in the Norfolk fens on Sunday 10 January. There is no obvious motive for the killings, but the pair ran a whippet-breeding enterprise and the police are hoping that someone in the dog world may offer them a clue.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
