: Crime and Punishment

Tony Marchant's two-part dramatisation of Dostoyevsky's classic crime thriller. Raskolnikov is a penniless young man incensed at the injustice he sees around him. Believing no one will miss her, he decides to rob and kill an old woman. But his own guilty conscience and the psychological skills of the murder investigator prove to be his undoing. The concluding part is tomorrow at 9pm.
Guilt-edged drama: page 44

Crime and Punishment
9.00pm BBC2
It takes a bold writer to adapt Dostoyevsky's Crime and Punishment for TV, so if it has to be done, then Tony Marchant (who wrote Swallow and Never Never) is your man. How well you think he has tackled this monumental task - though this complex story has been seen on television before - might depend on how acquainted you are with the book and its central themes of guiltand redemption.
It's the dark and bloody story of a disaffected young student, Rodion Raskolnikov (played with edgy unconventionality by John Simm),who murders a grasping pawnbroker and her entirely innocent sister, though why he does so is not apparent for some time.
In this first episode (the concluding part is tomorrow), Raskolnikov lurches around St Petersburg and a world of corruption and greed, haunted by images of the dead pawnbroker and her sister.
No one, of course, would approach Crime and Punishment looking for a cheery night in front of the television. This is raw, hard, difficult and occasionally baffling stuff. Guilt-edged drama: page 44 Alison Graham

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.
