Drama on 3: Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

Synopsis

We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
Hypocrisy, greed and secret passions threaten to tear apart a wealthy but dysfunctional Mississippi family in Tennessee Williams's explosive American masterpiece set in the Deep South. The play, produced here in its original version, portrays Maggie "the Cat", her alcoholic husband Brick, and the dominating family patriarch Big Daddy in a hot-house of corruption and lies. The drama is set against a backdrop of rampant 50s Cold War anti-communism, white domination, racial segregation and intense homophobia.

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.
