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.
'A writer in this country is an entertainer. He's absolutely no different in the public eye than somebody who does tap dancing - or whatever amuses the public - we are not regarded as philosophers, moralists or leaders of any description.'
MILLER Arthur Miller at 72 is still one of America's greatest ever playwrights. In tonight's programme he talks exclusively to Omnibus about his life and career, which began in Roosevelt's America during the Depression, continued through the Cold War of the 50s and now proceeds through the final months of the Reagan presidency.
Miller talks to Alan Yentob from his Connecticut home about the political and poetic nature of his plays, about being a writer in America and speaks publicly for the first time about his marriage to Marilyn Monroe.
The programme includes extracts from Death of Salesman, A View from the Bridge and After the Fall. Film editor DAVID KITSON Executive producer DIANA LASHMORE

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.

Feedback about Omnibus, BBC One London, 22.20, 30 October 1987
