Tonight:
Portrait in Black starring
LANA TURNER
ANTHONY QUINN
With
Sandra Dee , John Saxon
Richard Baschart , Lloyd Nolan Ray Walston
Screenplay by IVAN Goff and BEN ROBERTS
Produced by Ross Hunter
Directed by Michael Gordon
Matthew Cabot meets his death in what seems to be the perfect murder carried out by his wife Sheila and her lover Dr. David Rivera. Then an anonymous letter arrives proving that the crime wasn'so perfect and that someone else knows their secret. Suspicion falls on several people, and before the film ends several more lives have been ended or lie in ruins. The film is a splendid example of the ' woman's picture ' which its director Ross Hunter produced so well In the 1950s and early 1960s.

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.

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.
