Ginger Rogers Van Heflin

An apparently chance meeting with pretty young Nancy Ordway spells disaster for Broadway producer Peter Denver when she is found hanged in his apartment. Her death proves to be murder, with Denver the chief suspect, caught in a web of jealousy and intrigue in this glossy New York thriller.
Screenplay by NUNNALLY JOHNSON From a novel by PATRICK QUENTIN Produced and directed by NUNNALLY JOHNSON

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.
