Rex Harrison as Professor Higgins Audrey Hepburn as Eliza Doolittle
In the last of three films featuring the popular actor, Rex Harrison plays his most famous role in this delightful musical version of Shaw's play
Pygmalion. With a host of hit songs and no less than eight Academy Awards, it is truly Hollywood at its lavish best.
Henry Higgins , professor of phonetics, boasts to his friend Pickering that he could teach a cockney flower-girl to speak like a duchess. The next morning, to his astonishment, Eliza Doolittle turns up at his house, demanding that he make good his boast.
Higgins rises to the challenge....
Screenplay by ALAN JAY LERNER from his own musical play based on BERNARD SHAW'S play Pygmalion Music by FREDERICK LOEWE Lyrics by ALAN JAY LERNER Produced by JACK L. WARNER Directed by GEORGE CUKOR

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.
