HAROLD WILLIAMSON This week:
The Jury: Good Men and True?
I cannot think of any other social institution which is protected from rational enquiry because investigation might show that it (the jury) wasn'doing its job.
(SIR ROBERT MARK)
A jury consists of .12 persons chosen to decide who has the best lawyer. (ROBERT FROST) The ancient institution of the jury, and the system of trial built around it, is coming under increasing attack - from lawyers, from policemen, from jurors themselves. They say that the acquittal rate is too high; the average juror often doesn'understand what is going on; the system is haphazard and prevents an effective appeal procedure; it is high time to replace ' this apotheosis of amateurism' with something less dated and less fallible. While, according to some, our system of criminal justice - founded on the jury-is the best in the world, to others, this means no more than that the alternative systems are appallingly bad. On film with Michael Molyneux , and in the studio with Desmond Wilcox , Man Alive looks at the criticisms and asks the lawyers, policemen and laymen to suggest alternatives.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
