: Taking Liberties

A series of seven films presented by David Jessel. 5: A Criminal Way to Treat an Illness
Tony Russell is schizophrenic. He was forced on to the streets, attacked his mother and had to kill his father before the system would acknowledge that he was ill. He is now in Broadmoor.
Taking Liberties probes an Orwellian system which criminalises mental illness and calls it community care; a system which takes those who should be receiving hospital treatment and allows them to drift into homelessness and vagrancy; a system which all too often ends in tragedies like that of Tony Russell.

: The Lane

For more than three centuries the streets around Brick Lane , in London's East End, have been a haven for refugees -
French, Russians, Poles, Irish, Asians. They brought with them their cultures and customs and, above all, the spirit to survive and succeed. Living there today, locked in the same struggle, are: Penny, the transvestite hooker; the Burns Brothers rock 'n' roll band; the Rev Eddie Stride, champion of the alcoholics;
Steve, the alcoholic champion; Ranu, the Bengali seamster,
Solly, the wealthy furrier; and Isaac, affectionately known to the police as 'Yid one' - all part of a rich community soon to disappear, as the City's office blocks spread further east. Series producer JOHN PURDIE Director RON JOHNSON

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.
