: PRISONER AT THE BAR

A new series of studies in crime by Edgar Lustgarten
1-Hawley Harvey Crippen
All but one of the subjects in Edgar Lustgarten 's new series of crime studies were brought to the bar of British courts on a charge of murder: Miss Madeleine Smith , before the Edinburgh High Court of Justiciary in 1857; Sidney Harry Fox art the Sussex Assizes in 1930; and at the Old Bailey — Louis and Patrick Staunton in 1877, Herbert John Bennett in 1901 and Hawley Harvey Crippen in 1910. The exceptional case is that of George Archer-Shee , the young naval cadet who was withdrawn by request from Osborne College in 1908 following an enquiry into the theft of a five-shilling postal -order. After long legal argument a Petition of Right, brought by his father, was heard before a special jury in the King's Bench Division in 1910, when the facts of the case were ultimately established.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
