: Strangeways - the Final Chapter

'I tell you something, this place will go off, and when this place does go off, the roof will go.' A prophetic quote from an inmate who featured in Rex Bloomstein's definitive prison series, Strangeways, ten years ago. Last April, the prison did explode in one of the worst riots in British penal history. Tonight. following the screening of the award-winning edition, Christmas, Peter Taylor asks a distinguished panel and an audience of prison officers and inmates from
Strangeways whether anything has been learned in the intervening ten years. Is it time to listen more closely to prisoners and their grievances, to acknowledge their rights and develop prison regimes which might provide a more humane system and greater protection for society?

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.
