Gerard Depardleu , Bernard BUer Jean Carmet , Genevieve Page
Bertrand Blier 's murderous black comedy gives an unexpected and slightly menacing twist to the familiar French roman policier. Alphonse Tram loses his penknife on the metro and is startled to discover it, a few stations later, stuck in the chest of a corpse. When he gets home to the huge tower block he inhabits alone, Tram finds that another tenant has moved in: a police inspector who tells Tram he is hot on the trail of a killer.
Produced by ALAIN SARDE . Written and directed by BERTRAND BLIER. Films: p 12 A French film with English subtitles (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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
