This week:
If you break the law, no matter if you have murdered your wife or forgotten to pay your TV licence, the chances are that the first court to which you are summoned will be presided over by an amateur-a part-time magistrate. Out of nearly 20,000 magistrates in England and Wales, less than fifty are paid for their vocation. The vast majority are lay Justices, worthy members of society who give up part of their spare time to sit in judgment on the rest of us. They work for nothing more than the honour and the responsibility. The way they are appointed is a mystery even to them, because the selection process is shrouded in secrecy. But the majority of them, even today, are middle-class people of mature years, because they are the people most likely to have the time to spare.
It is these men and women who deal with ninety-eight per cent of all criminal cases, let alone all the petty offences like parking in restricted areas, which almost all of us commit at some time or another. The odds are that one day you will appear before a Justice of the Peace. What kind of people are they? What sort of qualifications do they have? Are they the right people for the enormously responsible job they have to do?

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.

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.
