: Taking Liberties

A series of seven films presented by David Jessel. 7: A Measure of Suspicion Sean Ramsey moved his family from Northern Ireland after his daughter was injured by a bomb. At dawn, two years ago, police broke through his door and he was arrested; he still doesn't know exactly why. He was never charged, and it's a bitter experience the Ramseys will never forget.
Taking Liberties talks to some of the thousands of people arrested and then released as innocent under one of the strongest laws in the land, the Prevention of Terrorism Act.
Is enough caution being used in the exercise of such a devastatingly powerful law? As Sean Ramsey says: 'It seems to me it's needed, but it's a terrible price to innocent people.' Producer SARAH MANWARING-WHITE Series producer ELIZABETH CLOUGH

The mid-1990s: Sam Beckett , a brilliant physicist, is the head of a time-travel experiment which one day succeeds in working - almost. From a hi-tech laboratory,
Sam wakes to find himself in a strange bed, with a strange wife, an unrecognisable reflection in the mirror and a problem. It's 1956 and Sam is a test pilot - an interesting job for someone without the first idea about how to fly ...

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.
