: * Lady Ellen and Lady Law

Nine programmes from the BAFTA award-winning documentary series Circuit Eleven Miami.
9: Ellen Morphonios is an ex-chat show hostess, an ex-wife (twice), and a crack shot with a muzzle-loading musket. She's also a no-nonsense Circuit Court judge, with a penchant for Draconian sentences peppered with homespun wisdom. One major regret of hers is that many criminals she's sentenced to the chair are still awaiting electrocution.
One of the judge's many admirers is a pretty young prosecuting attorney called Carol Guralnick , who sets out to follow in the foot-steps of this doyenne of Miami jurisprudence, by standing for election herself as a Circuit Eleven judge. Carol Guralnick seems to have all the qualifications. For she too is a former radio personality and an uncompromising hard-liner - elected by the people, and not appointed as in Britain.

Its limits are only those of the mind itself. Ladies and gentlemen, you're entering the wondrous dimension of imagination. Next stop - The Twilight Zone."

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.
