The Late Film: Such Dust As Dreams Are Made On


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.
David Janssen. who died last month, was perhaps best known to television viewers for his portrayal of Harry 0, the hard, bitter ex-cop and private detective. In tonight's film, Harry accepts an unusual assignment; unusual because the man paying him, Harlan Garrison , is the man who shot him four years before, thus causing his compulsory retirement from the police force.
Screenplay by HOWARD RODMAN
Produced and directed by JERRY THORPE (First showing on British television)

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.
