Nobody knows how many rapes are unreported. Research carried out by a Metropolitan police officer, Det Insp Ian Blair, concludes that the effects of rape on victims are more severe than those of almost any other crime, and those effects are likely to affect the woman's willingness to report the crime and her ability to give evidence. Does society condone the crime by making the victim herself feel guilty? Is rape really a crime of violence, not sex? How often are rapists strangers to their victims? How can the victim best be helped?
Barbara Toner , author of The Facts of Rape;
Denise Robertson of the Birmingham Rape Crisis
Centre; and Det Insp Ian Blair , author of Investigating Rape, answer your questions. In the Chair Jenni Mills Producer LIZ MARDALL for the Woman's Hour unit Lines open from 8.0 pm

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.
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.
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.
