: The Saturday Thriller: Queen Bee

Feature films with suspense, danger, excitement
Starring Joan Crawford, Barry Sullivan, John Ireland
Written for the screen and directed by Ranald MacDougall

Eva Phillips, a beautiful but ruthless woman, dominates and manipulates her circle of friends until her jealousy leads to tragedy and revenge.

Queen Bee is a typical Joan Crawford vehicle, and she plays the Southern socialite with all the stops pulled out. She has enacted many life-wreckers before in her long career, but it is a tribute to her that at fifty-one she was still convincing as a femme fatale.
The movie gives Miss Crawford the opportunity to parade some remarkable costumes, including an evening gown with a daringly slit skirt, an outfit with which she wears a single long black glove.
Fay Wray, heroine of the original King Kong, reappears as a fading, slightly mad Southern belle whose fiance was snatched from her just before the ceremony - by Eva, of course.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
