Saturday Cinema: The Man Who Came to Dinner


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.
starring Bette Davis Ann Sheridan Monty Woolley
'Literary lion' Sheridan Whiteside is all sweetness and light in public, but in private he is a master of the studied insult. When he slips and injures his hip during a visit to the Stanley home
Whiteside takes over the household and forces the entire family to wait on him. Bette Davis , in a rare comedy part, plays Whiteside's long-suffering secretary - the only person not afraid of him.
Screenplay by JULIUS J. AND PHILIP G. EPSTEIN From the stage play by GEORGE S. KAUFMAN and MOSS HART Directed by WILLIAM KEIGHLEY

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.
