: Man Alive Special

Equal Before the Law?
To no man will we deny, to no man will we sell or delay justice or right (MAGNA CARTA) Only the millionaire, the masochist or the very poor can think about going to court today.
Legal aid is the most remunerative thing that has happened to the legal profession since the invention of sin. (ANON) If all men are to be equal before the law, all men must have equal access to advice and advocacy. The legal aid system has been developed over the years to reduce the gap between the high idealism and the everyday reality. Tonight's extended Man Alive (postponed from December) examines the gap that still exists and asks how far a fair hearing is still determined by the thickness of your wallet.
On film JACK pizzey reports on cases where denial or restriction of legal aid may have led to injustice. In the studio DESMOND wilcox introduces a discussion between judges, lawyers and laymen: their views range from those who maintain that ' British legal aid is the best in the world ' to those who see it as ' the feeble Cinderella of our social services.'

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
