Murder in America
There were 18,000 murders in the United States in 1972. More Americans were murdered in three years than were killed in combat in Vietnam in ten years.
A remarkable film report by NBC examines the reasons for these terrifying statistics. It examines how the seeds of violence germinate and grow in the poor areas-the ghettos; why it is that murder is spreading to the middle-class suburbs; why the murder rate is nearly twenty-five times greater than in this country.
Jim Hartz reports from Denver, Colorado, a city the size of Manchester, on the homicide division -the murder squad.

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.
