continues a major season of films from New Zealand.
Tonight starring John Gielgud Jane Birkin
John Middleton Murry is asked by his young wife,
Katherine Mansfield , to 'leave all fair' on her death. But as the years progress and her stature as New Zealand's greatest writer grows, Murry publishes her lesser writings. Years later Murry travels to France to approve a major new editing of his wife's works. There he meets his publisher's assistant - also a New Zealander - who bears a striking resemblance to
Katherine. She then disturbs him by questioning his motives in publishing
Katherine's lesser works.
This elegant film was shot on location in France and is based on fact.
Screenplay by STANLEY HARPER Produced by JOHN O'SHEA Directed by JOHN REID

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
