Panorama

The Boys on B Wing
How is it that every year 1,500 teenage boys - all 16 years old or younger - can be locked up in British prisons, two to a cell, 20 hours a day, on remand sometimes for offences as trivial as absconding and car theft?
Reporter David Lomax and a Panorama crew have been allowed to visit B Wing in Hull prison, where, in cells without windows or toilets,
15- and 16-year-old boys have often been waiting months for their cases to be heard.
Fourteen years ago, a Parliamentary Committee recommended that the holding on remand of children in adult prisons should cease forthwith.
Why hasn't it happened?
Would an increase in 'secure units' like Aycliffe in Co Durham or Eastmoor in Leeds be a more humane response to our juvenile criminals and make them less likely to re-offend? Or do the boys on B Wing deserve everything they get?

CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY v. A.A.A.

A Commentary on the Athletic Meeting by Mr. H. M. ABRAHAMS
Relayed from Fenner's, Cambridge
With Interludes by the WIRELESS
MTLITARY BAND with FRANK Foxon (Baritone) and the B.B.C. DANCE ORCHESTRA
Personally conducted by JACK PAYNE
THIS afternoon's athletic meeting has more interest than the usual contest between a University and an outside club. Since the war Cambridge has supplied an unusually high proportion of athletes to the British Olympic teams, and Fenner's is now recognized as one of the most likely places to which to look for cracks capable of holding their own in the best company the world can provide.
So this year the meeting between the Varsity and the Amateur Athletic Association has been arranged as a sort of Olympic test. Cambridge are to be strengthened by the addition of some of the star products of recent years, and their team will include such famous athletes as H. B. Stallard , the miler and half-miler, D. G. A. Lowe, who has already run for Great Britain at Colombes, C. T. van Geyzel, the high jumper from Ceylon, and those two fine hurdlers, Lord Burghley and G. C. Weightmann-Smith . The encounter between these cracks and the stiong team brought down by the A.A.A. should make a most thrilling afternoon's sport, which listeners will hear described by Mr. H. M. Abrahams, himself an old Cambridge runner, and a former victor in the Olympic Game?, an article by whom on this afternoon's meeting will be found on page 425.

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.
