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.
A film starring
Doris Day , Rex Harrison
Frightening telephone calls, mysterious voices in the London fog, a near-fatal accident: can they be imagined? Kit Preston, American wife of a wealthy financier, claims that the threats on her life are only too real. Unfortunately, her family and the police seem to doubt her word - and her sanity. Hollywood's singing star Doris Day came to Britain to play an untypical dramatic role in this tense psychological thriller.
Screenplay by IVAN GOFF and BEN ROBERTS , based on the play Matilda Shouted Fire by JANET GREEN

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.
