The independence of the judiciary is a tremendous inheritance we got from British rule. It is there to protect the ordinary citizens against the all-powerful state when it comes to fundamental rights.
You can't be complacent. There will always be times that are not as good for the rule of law as other times are. The important thing is to preserve the yardstick and sometimes to be conscious that we 're not doing well enough.
The panoply of justice has proved one of the most abiding legacies of the British Empire. From a magistrates court in Barbados to the Supreme Court in Kuala Lumpur Nick Clarke finds that, though the procedure and the wigs and gowns are familiar, cracks are appearing in this great legal edifice. Producer ANNE SLOMAN
Music is your own experience, your thoughts, your wisdom.
If you don 't live it, it won't come out of your horn. They teach you there's a boundary line to music. But man there's 's no boundary line to art. (CHARLIE PARKER ) Charlie Parker was one of the major innovators of modern jazz. He was also an alcoholic and a heroin addict. When he died in 1955 his age was estimated at between 50 and 60. He was, in fact, 34 years old.
A few days after his death, the words 'Bird Lives' were found scrawled on a wall. The process of turning Parker into a myth had begun.

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.
