starring Anne Bancroft
Dustin Hoffman , Katharine Ross
Shortly after graduating from college, Benjamin Braddock returns home and discovers a new 'tutor' in the attractive form of Mrs Robinson. Twice his age and worldly-wise, the alcoholic Mrs R decides that Benjamin needs instruction in more physical matters after his intellectual struggles ...
A witty script, memorable Paul Simon songs and fine central performances from Bancroft and Hoffman (in his screen debut) helped make this one of the greatest box office successes.
Screenplay by CALDER WILLINGHAM and BUCK HENRY based on the novel by CHARLES WEBB Produced by LAWRENCE TURMAN
Directed by MIKE Nichols. Films: page 14

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.
