The Saturday Thriller: Saboteur


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.
Feature films with suspense, danger, excitement.
After "Psycho", shown on BBC-tv last week, this film is a Hitchcock production of a different kind. Like the heroes of "The 39 Steps" and "North By North West", the hero of "Saboteur", Barry Kane, is innocently implicated in a criminal conspiracy and becomes a fugitive from both the law and the criminals. All the evidence seems to point to his guilt. He's accompanied on his flight, as are the heroes of the other two films, by an attractive blonde. Look out for a spectacular, typically Hitchcock finale atop the Statue of Liberty

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.
