Television reconstructs one episode in Scotland Yard's fight against the armed criminal.
The stolen motor-car, the 'souvenir' revolver, and the Black Market have brought a new and dangerous element into post-war crime. This programme follows an armed robbery from the 'plot' to the result in murder, and then through the intense detective work and interrogation, the tracing of clues, and the work of the finger-print and gun experts, to the moment of arrest.
Three designs from British competitors will be submitted for world arbitration. These designs will be selected and shown to you by members of the British Committee set up for the purpose: Jack Beddington, Jack Brebner, Ashley Havinden, F. A. Mercer, Tom Purvis, and V. Rotter.
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.
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.
