Comedy thriller starring
Goldie Hawn
Chevy Chase Dudley Moore
Attractive Gloria Mundy gets more than she bargained for when she offers a stranger a lift - she changes overnight from a recently divorced librarian to a murder suspect and the chase is on to prove her innocence before she becomes the next victim.
Set in San Francisco this
Hitchcock parody uses every kind of thriller device. It was commercially very successful and spawned a short-lived US television series in the early 1980s.The soundtrack features the Barry Manilow hit Ready to Take a Chance Again.

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.
