: Sleuth

The feature film starring Laurence Olivier Michael Caine who tells RADIO TIMES: t
To work with two such great men [OLIVIER and MANKIEwicz] was tremendous, but hard work - the hardest work I've done in my life and the most rewarding. You try fighting off Olivier for an hour-and-a-half - he was a demon. It gave me an opportunity to become friends with both men, and I've remained friends since, which I regard as a great privilege. I shall be home to see it.
Andrew Wyke - a brilliantly successful and wealthy writer of detective stories - has a passion for mechanical toys and indoor games. When he invites the young hairdresser Milo to his country mansion, it is to play one of the most macabre and cruel games that even the master novelist can devise....
Anthony Shaffer has adapted his ingenious and highly-successful play to the screen, retaining both the thrills and the ironic critique of class prejudice, magnificently conveyed in the performances by Olivier and Michael Caine.
Screenplay by ANTHONY SHAFFER Produced by MORTON GOTTLIEB

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 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 find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

This is a historical record of both 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.
