The third of nine films about life in the Soviet Union
The Trial of Tamara Russo
Lyubov Bubulich and Tamara Russo do not mix in the same circles, although they are of an age and live in the same small provincial town in Moldavia. For Lyubov is a judge in the local people's court, a Communist Party member, a high wage-earner and married, while Tamara scrubs floors in a local hospital, is not a Party member, earns a miserable wage and is a widow.
But one day the two women do meet - across the floor of Courtroom No 4.
Tamara is on trial: Lyubov is her judge. The maximum sentence she can impose is five years.
Their encounter is the first that western cameras have been allowed to film inside a Soviet court.

: Three Painters

Giotto, Rembrandt and Turner
Sir Lawrence Gowing explores the work of three great artists
3: J.M.W. Turner (1775-1851) Elements of Risk Turner's intuition about natural forces was hidden from his time. But his brooding on the irresistible apocalypse of radiation has become familiar to us. He was mad about colour and far worse than that, because the British never mind a madman, he was serious about colour. Turner's view was unsparing; it consumed and enlivened a whole world. J.M.W. Turner was born in London, the son of a barber. He travelled extensively in his own country, in France, Switzerland and Italy, and his output was prodigious - 528 finished and unfinished oil paintings and more than 19,000 drawings.

: Police Powers

Third of six films on the police and the public. Ruling the Streets
The Public Order Act 1986 gave police sweeping new powers over any street gathering. Police say they have to balance the rights of protestors with those of the community at large. But there are fears that the Act - backed by sophisticated riot training and equipment - could undermine basic civil rights and could be used by police to remove anyone they don't like from the streets.
The film looks at the policing of the anti-Alton Bill march in London and the anti-apartheid picket of the South African Embassy and at the case of a group of young people arrested while waiting for a bus.

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.

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.
