Narrator/script, music and settings:
The adventures of the Bastable children in search of a fortune by E. Nesbit.
Adapted from the book and produced by Dorothea Brooking.
The story takes place in the year 1899.
Adapted and produced by:
A series of documentary programmes dealing with the work of Juvenile Courts, Magistrates' Courts, and the Assizes, by Duncan Ross.
In the Juvenile Court and Magistrates' Court both the decision as to whether the prosecution had 'beyond all reasonable doubt' proved its case and, if it had, the subsequent sentence rested with the Bench. Tonight's reconstruction of the Assize Court shows how these responsibilities are borne by Judge and Jury.
Many persons charged with crimes in the Magistrates' Court may elect to go to 'the Court above' or, if their crime is very serious, they may be sent there. Tonight's programme, the third and last of the series, shows some of these cases and includes one - unsensational but all too common in the Assize Courts of England - robbery with violence that resulted in murder.
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.
