: CRIME AND THE CRIMINAL

A new series of thirteen programmes
The first group concerns our attitudes to crime and the causes of criminal behaviour; the second illustrates the treatment of the young offender 1: What is crime? by BARONESS WOOTTON OF ABINGER
Produced by Rosemary Jellis
No one needs to be reminded that there is an increase in crime, particularly among young people. From indignation and despair at the threat to his security, the reasonable citizen moves on to ask what social and personal pressures drive a man or woman to criminal behaviour and whether our attitudes to crime and punishment, as they are expressed in the present penal system, are adequate.
These Questions are relevant and timely. The Royal Commission on the Penal System in England and Wales is at work and new legislation is already foreshadowed in two White Papers. This series aims to provide facts and ideas to help inform public discussion on the issues involved.

Three talks by ANDREW SHONFIELD
Director of Studies Royal Institute of International Affairs
1: Economic Collaboration
There appears to be less tension and friction between Mr. Wilson's government and industry than during the 1945-51 period. Is this more than a logical political development over twenty years, and how significant is the divergence between the stated objectives of Labour Party policy-especially Clause 4-and its actual behaviour towards private enterprise?
Commonwealth Conflicts: February 28

Symphony No. 4, in D minor
Recorded before an invited audience in BBC Studio 1. Maida Vale, London. Requests for tickets for future concerts may be sent to [address removed]. enclosing a stamped addressed envelope.

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.
