Midnight Movie Sea Wife


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.
Richard Burton , Joan Collins with Basil Sydney, Cy Grant
The unnecessary death of one of the four survivors of a British ship torpedoed near Singapore in 1942 has a lasting effect on the other three who are eventually rescued.
Richard Burton gives a fine, brooding performance in this war story which bears a marked similarity to Hitchcock's Lifeboat. Cy Grant , the West Indian folk singer, is given his first major screen role in the part of the ship's purser.
Screenplay by GEORGE K. BURKE based on the novel Sea Wyf and Biscuit by J. M. SCOTT
Directed by BOB MCNAUGHT Produced by ANDRE hakim

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.
