: New Street Law

3/8. While working together to defend a depressed man who is accused of murdering his wife, Jack and Annie disagree over the best line to take.
Writer Gf Newman ; Producer Matthew Bird ; Director Julian Holmes

Today's Choices: Legal Drama: New Street Law 8.00pm BBC1
Preview tapes of this, the third episode of the new legal drama series, were unavailable, so we can't tell you whether it's managed to pick up the pace after a sluggish start.
What we can say is that committed barrister Jack Roper (John Hannah) and colleague Annie (Lara Cazalet) work together to defend Mike Richards (Mark Womack) who's accused of murdering his wife. It would seem to be an open-and-shut case, but not to Jack, whose client was on antidepressants when the killing happened. Jack is convinced the pills triggered psychotic episodes in Richards, leaving him unable to control his actions.
One wonders how far Jack can control his actions, as this week he's caught out committing a cardinal barrister sin - talking to a witness for the "other side". He could be in big trouble. (Alison Graham)

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.
