: Silent Witness

unidentified victim? Concludes on Monday at 9pm.
Writer Michael Crompton ; Producer Nick Pitt ; Director Douglas McKinnon

Silent Witness 9.10pm BBC1
At the start of this final episode in the latest series, we appear to have entered Casualty country. A train is rattling through the countryside in the dark, and a young mum assures her restless daughter, "We'll be home soon."
Well, don't bet on it, because in true Casualty-esque fashion, the train hits a car parked on a level crossing, and veers off the tracks, resulting in awful injuries and loss of life. The actual accident is extremely effectively and frighteningly portrayed, and might give regular train travellers pause for thought.
But, of course, this isn't Casualty, and after a belting start we are pitched into the usual ponderous plot as the team of medics is asked by survivors of the crash to perform a second postmortem on a hitherto unidentified victim, known rather poignantly simply as "Body 21".
I could have missed something, but I'm not entirely sure why doctors Dalton, Cunningham and young professor Alexander are called upon to do this, or why it's the business of the survivors group. But there you go.
Naturally, this is merely a means by which the fabulous trio begin their own investigation into the actual cause of the crash. Of course, the police have drawn a blank - - no one seems to know why the car, which belonged to an officer at the nearby army base, came to be parked on the level crossing. And everyone is behaving very oddly indeed.
The story concludes on Monday.

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.
