: The Detectives: 2: The Great Dynamite Outrages

by Doris Ker
Six classic cases in the story of British criminal investigation as we know it today.

Narrator Trader Faulkner
From January 1883 until January 1885 a series of explosions took place in London which were to mystify, then terrify, the British public. The police 'Dynamite Department', as it was popularly known, succeeded in tracing certain substances found at the scene of each bombing back to an American source. But it wasn't until the contents of a trunk belonging to one James Gilbert Cunningham, a Fenian agent, were examined that the breakthrough occurred.
This particular case brought the Special Branch of Scotland Yard into existence. With the voices of: ANTHONY JACKSON, STEVE HODSON, MICHAEL FAWKES, DAVID BRIERLEY, WILLIAM EEDLE, KEVIN FLOOD, HAYDN JONES, SHIRLEY DIXON, DAPHNE ROGERS, IRENE SUTCLIFFE and FRANK GRIMES
Producer MAURICE LEITCH

: Spice Trail North

George Luce follows the fortunes of a spice company. C. C. Spice UK Ltd, which moved from the Port of London to Runcorn on Merseyside two years ago. What made the company decide to move, what kind of operation did it turn out to be, and, two years on, how successful has the whole operation been, not only for the company, but for the men who work there, their wives and families, and for the area the company moved into.
In the final assessment was it all worth it? Do the advantages of moving away from London to leafy Mersevside outweigh the many problems the whole idea produced? Producer MARLENE PEASE

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.
