The service allows search against records of legal proceedings at the Old Bailey, London's central criminal court, from 1674 to 1913. The fully searchable repository gives access to documentation of almost 200,000 criminal trials either by specific case or for all cases that match specified terms.
API methods support submission of search criteria, either a trial number, text to match, or both, along with the number of desired results (maximum of 1000 per request) and the desired output format, either text or zip file. If both a trial number and match text are specified, output tags the specified terms within the text returned.
The following is a list of historical changes that were made to this asset. Typically, once an API is published on ProgrammableWeb.com, the data we keep about that asset gets updated over the course of its life. For example, the endpoint or home page of the documentation might change. As a means of enforcing the integrity of our data, every time a non-trivial change is made to the data we keep about an asset, we require the entry of some changelog text before that change can be saved. This way, we have a great audit trail of all activity surrounding the asset. For each asset, the changelogs begins with the moment an asset is approved for publication on ProgrammableWeb. If you spot an error in our data and believe that a record needs to be updated in some way, the ProgrammableWeb team would very much like to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org
So far, we don't have a record of any changes to this API
