The Late Film: Best Kept Secrets


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.
Laura Dietz is the perfect policeman's wife. Devoted to her husband Blaise, she leads a comfortable life surrounded by a tight circle of other cops' wives. But when Blaise is refused a promotion Laura discovers that she is the reason. Politically active, she is under investigation and a secret file is held on her that will be used for blackmail. Her choice is clear - her principles or her marriage.
Screenplay by APRIL SMITH Produced by DAVID MANSON

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.
