On the Word of a Supergrass To the Royal Ulster
Constabulary they are'converted terrorists', to the Republican community they are 'paid perjurers', to the families of the men and women they name for arrest they are liars 'greedy for money'. As one Loyalist supergrass himself admits, they are willing to make false depositions to achieve a reduction in sentence for their own crimes and the promise of a new life. In this programme the Republican
'Relatives for Justice' and the Loyalist 'Families for Legal Rights' groups are seen campaigning for an end to the supergrass system. The lives of many who have been found innocent after years on remand have been blighted. A growing number of outraged lawyers and politicians say that juryless courts convicting on such dubious evidence is not a system fit to be called justice. Reporter

Devizes, Wiltshire
Devizes no longer has its
12th-century castle and on the site is 'a pantomime recreation of the Victorian
Period'. It retains its medieval street plan and the original castle's enormous outer bailey has become the largest market place in the west of England. In 1810 the Kennet and Avon Canal was opened - the Devizes flight of 29 locks is the second longest in England. Bath stone was able to travel as never before and in its heyday the canal changed the face of the town. Photography COLIN WALDECK Producer JANE COLES (R)

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.

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.
