: The Saturday Thriller: Phone Call from a Stranger

Feature films with suspense, danger, excitement
Starring Shelley Winters, Gary Merrill, Michael Rennie
and Bette Davis, Keenan Wynn, Evelyn Varden

Tonight's film is an unusual story about four strangers each trying to escape from some part of their past. They meet while waiting for the departure of an aircraft. On the flight they come to know each other closely; and when the plane crashes and only one of the group survives he visits the relatives of his three friends and through them comes to find a solution to his own problems.
Gary Merrill stars as Trask, a lawyer who is leaving his wife because he cannot reconcile himself to her one infidelity. His companions on the flight include Binky Gay (Shelley Winters), a show girl who has failed to make the grade and is returning home to her estranged husband and domineering mother-in-law. Michael Rennie plays a doctor with a load of guilt on his conscience, and Keenan Wynn is excellent as a loud-mouthed travelling salesman. Bette Davis appears towards the end of the picture as the wife of the salesman; it is her revelation about her relationship with her husband that is instrumental in resolving Trask's own problem.

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.
