11: Perjury with guest stars: , the ' log-and-dog man ' : ' Commit perjury for fifty nicker? Well-I've often told lies for nothing. But not here. Not in court. That's different. May my grandmother's soul rot in hell if I tell- a lie here.'
John Westbrook as Mr. Faulkner, Counsel for Mr. Riley: ' All we say is that whether or not Mr. Morris had a watch on him when Mr. Riley struck him, it was not this watch here that was damaged.'
So one of the parties was committing perjury.

What can we do about the endless strikes in practically every industry in Britain? Can labour contracts be enforced? Must the ' freedom to strike' always be one of the main planks of union policy? Must we have strikes with everything or is there any chance of future industrial enlightenment which could move us towards prosperity?

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.
