continues the season of films by Orson Welles who died in October.
Today starring Rita Hayworth Orson Welles
Rita Hayworth herself proposed that husband Orson Welles direct her in this bravura thriller about cross and double-cross among a party of rich folk on a yacht. Rita sported an unexpected short haircut and played a femme rather more fatale than usual - all in keeping with Welles's dazzling direction which included the classic final shoot-out in a hall of mirrors.
Screenplay by ORSON WELLES
Based on the novel If I Die Before I Wake by SHERWOOD KING Produced and directed by ORSON WELLES
(Welles Directs Chimes at Midnight tomorrow at 3.45 pm)

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.
