Jack Lemmon in Save the Tiger


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.
with Jack Gilford
Harry Stoner has a floundering business, an expensive life style and a deep resentment about his lost past. Harry longs for the day when the world was young and stylish, the choices were simple and he was in love with ' something'. Now it costs him$200 a day just to get up -and he can't afford it. He juggles the books, pimps for a client and plans an . insurance fraud at one of his factories. All for money ...
Jack Lemmon won an Oscar as best actor for his magnificent performance as Harry, in a film remarkable for its sharp script and sensitive direction.
Written and produced by STEVE SHAGAN Directed by JOHN c. AVILDSEN

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.
