Screen Two: Femme Fatale


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.
This new BBC film is the latest Screen Two collaboration from writer Simon Gray and producer Kenith Trodd. Starring Simon Callow, Donald Pleasence, Colin Welland

Following the violent death of her parents, an Italian beauty marries and settles in an English village. But the sleepy inhabitants of Meryton are soon roused to desperate passions of their own, with tragic and ludicrous results.

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.
