The Horror Movie: The Beast Must Die


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.
I Continuing a season of films to thrill and chill. Tonight starring Peter Cushing
Calvin Lockhart
A full moon, an old, dark house, and a howling in the woods herald a whodunnit with a gruesome difference. The number of the guests is dwindling, not because of a normal murderer, but because one of this assortment of mysterious weekend guests is a werewolf! Which of the guests becomes a man-eating beast when the moon is full? Who is the wolf and who the red herring? In the best armchair-detective tradition the film contains a 30-second 'werewolf break' to help you guess the beast's true identity!
Screenplay by MICHAEL WINDER
Based on the novel There Shall Be No Darkness by JAMES BLISH
Directed by PAUL ANNETT

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.
