: Bookmark

Presented by Ian Hamilton. William Trevor is probably best known as a writer of radio and television plays, most of which are adaptations from his own short stories. This month he publishes a new collection, The News from Ireland.
Born and educated in Cork and Dublin, Trevor has lived and worked in England for over 20 years. Ian Hamilton visits him at home in Devon and explores his exile's view of Ireland and the Irish. In a special public reading for Bookmark, Edmund White, the American author of A Boy's Own Story, presents extracts from his new funny and erotic novel, Caracole.
And a profile of the novelist
Ruth Rendell. Admirers place her in the forefront of exponents of the detective story, but she also writes in another vein. Her latest book, Live Flesh, is a disturbing study of fear and phobia in the mind of a rapist. Directors JILL EVANS. DONALD STURROCK. PATCHY WHEATLEY Producer ROGER THOMPSON
Executive producer NIGEL WILLIAMS

: 40 Minutes

A series of films about the way we live now A Case of Malicious
Wounding
Over the last 18 months, Adrian Simpson, a miner from Stainforth in South
Yorkshire, has been in and out of court, in and out of hospital, lost his job, and worse - all because of the events of a few minutes one summer's day. 'It's really ransacked our lives,' says his wife, Edith.
During the miners' strike,
Adrian spent his days quietly fishing. He went near the picket line only once. A few minutes later he'd been arrested, suffered brain damage and been charged with maliciously wounding a police officer.
It is a crime he says he didn't commit. But the police evidence against him seems clear. If he loses his case, Adrian Simpson faces imprisonment. How will he cope? What will happen to his wife and their two children?
What will the future hold for them? Photography

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.
