: Afternoon Play: Guilty Until Proved Innocent

When Dina and Jake rush their baby daughter to hospital little do they realise that it's the beginning of a Kafkaesque nightmare from which there appears to be no escape. By Deborah Davis. Dan Stevens ,
Additional roles played by Melissa Advani , Joseph Cohen-Cole , David Hargreaves , Rhys Jennings , Kate Layden , Tessa Nicholson , Nigel Pilkington and Piers Wehner producer/Director Tracey Neale

Afternoon Play: Guilty until Proved Innocent 2.15pm Radio 4 FM
SBS is the sinister acronym for shaken baby syndrome, a term used by medical experts to explain particular injuries in infants but now associated with several high-profile miscarriages of justice. These real cases are pretty appalling so playwright Deborah Davis is right to tell her story with simplicity and directness, allowing the horror of what happens to fictional couple Dina (Maxine Peake, above) and Jake to speak for itself when they are accused of SBS after their baby daughter falls out of her cot. And it's all there - the assumption of guilt, the secrecy of the family courts, the bullying of the social workers and, above all, the sense that, strangely, the well-being of the child is the very last thing on the bureaucratic agenda. (Jacqueline Wheeler)

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.
