: Out of Court

David Jessel and Sue Cook , with film reporter Ed Boyle , examine the sparks which fly when people clash with the law.
This week 100 years ago it was an elementary matter for Sherlock Holmes to unravel the mystery of the murderous hound of the Baskervilles. These days, when vicious and out-of-control dogs are responsible for as many as six savage attacks a week, the law seems to be less effective.
Can a way be found to regulate ownership of these potentially lethal animals? Studio director PIETER MORPURGO Producer ALAN BOOKBINDER

: Arena: Stop Making Sense

Arena presents the first television showing for Jonathan 'Something Wild' Demme's superlative concert-movie featuring Talking Heads.
David Byrne's innovatory visual flair and virtuosity as a performer surmount the cliches of both the tinsel vacuity of pop videos and the tired posturing of rock shows. Demme does away with the visual jargon of the rocumentary - no shots to adoring fans - and by dispensing with shaggy perms, straining leather trousers and squealing red guitars, Stop Making Sense drags the pop concert into the 80s.
Alone and dwarfed in an elephantine white suit, Byrne itches and twitches to fever pitch. He opens with a jittery, acoustic version of Psycho Killer and the drama builds through Heaven and Slippery People to the manic Burning Down the House.

The likelihood of a New
Zealand v Wales semi-final with PETER SKOGLUND and PETER BELLiss against

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.
