Late Night Horror: The Kiss of Blood


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.
Based on a short story by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Starring Diane Cilento and Roy Dotrice
Lady Sannox is one of the richest and most beautiful women in London. Her husband is many years her senior and is apparently quite content with the life she is leading. He seems more interested in cultivating his chrysanthemums - until Lady Sannox becomes the mistress of Douglas Stone, the eminent surgeon. Lord Sannox watches this affair, waiting to prove, perhaps, that he is not the meek, mild man his wife expects. He seeks his revenge, which is swift and terrible.

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.
