Jean Charvin is a personable, industrious, and intelligent young man. He was honourably discharged from the army after a series of unprecedented rapid promotions. His employer considers him both upright and honourable and his work to be outstanding. Family friends vouched that he and his young bride, Marie Louise, were blissfully happy. Yet she was killed by a savage blow from an Indian club. Jean insists that it was an accident, that he hit Marie Louise while exercising, but medical evidence proves otherwise. Why did Jean kill his wife? The answer is found while Jean serves his sentence in a brutal French penal colony.

Monsieur Jean-Paul Giradous:
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.
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.
