A play by Laurence Housman
The Judge and The Jury in a Court of Justice and in the Jury
Room adjoining at the time of a trial for murder
Produced by Cyril Wood
There would appear to be no limit to Laurence Housman 's versatility. Today, as the author of Victoria Regina , he is inevitably regarded as an authority on the Victorian era. But he has a long and varied list of other plays to his credit, of which the Little Plays of St. Francis are perhaps the best known. Besides these, he has made numerous flights of imagination into ancient Greece, as well as into the realms of pure fantasy.
This evening comes another complete change. Laurence Housman invites the listener to a murder trial to overhear the vital last half-hour in the Jury Room, and to consider with the jury the verdict they will give.
' Consider Your Verdict ’ will be broadcast again tomorrow in the Regional programme at 3.0

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
