The first of two films on the morality of punishment. Getting Even
From Greek tragedy to the death penalty, society has demanded revenge and retribution in punishment. This film explores the part the victims play in getting even, and shows how the justice system struggles to compensate for the suffering of victims by the degree of pain it inflicts on the offender.
It tells the story of Stephen Owen who, frustrated by the failure of the courts to inflict sufficient suffering on the man who killed his son, took the law into his own hands. And there is a report from America, where victims have become a political force. The cameras go into a Californian court to witness a murder trial. In a chilling and disturbing climax, it shows for the first time how relatives of the victim persuade a jury to sentence the offender to death. Producer Sally Doganis
Executive producer John Blake (Part 2, A Cure for Crime, is on Wednesday at 8. 1 Opm)

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.

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.
