: CRIME AND THE CRIMINAL

In the first group of programmes criminologists and other specialists have been discussing theories of crime and the criminal. The next group is about the practitioner-men and women who actually deal with the criminal, particularly the young. In tonight's programme Dr. Alan Little , of the London School of Economics, talks to a juvenile court magistrate. In the following weeks he talks to a probation officer and the head of a detention centre, a borstal, and an approved school. The last programme in this group is given over to a consumer's view. Three boys in a borstal talk about their experiences in the juvenile court, a detention centre, and the other institutions on which the series has focused.
7: Juvenile Court
' Absorbing interest, always fascination, always feeling that hardly any case is like another. Everything is different. Extraordinary diversity of children and parents. And always learning and never feeling one knows the answer at all '
DR. ALAN LITTLE of the London School of Economics talks to
MRS. G. RICHARDSON , a magistrate at Westminster Juvenile Court in London about the court and its work

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
