Anthea Browne-Wilkinson
Designer. Mary Rea
Producer, VERITY LAMBERT
Directed by DAVID PROUDFOOT
' Is this where you keep stolen property? ' ' Not quite, sir. Inspector Rason is in charge of our ... um ... dead ends.' And in Scotland Yard Inspector Rason sits surrounded by clues which have led to ' dead ends,' and waits-waits for a criminal to make a move which will connect him with a clue. In the Blagrove case there seems to be no motive-the victim had no enemies-there are no clues. The only thing found at the scene of the crime that seems out of place is a book of love poems. Can Rason find a link between this and the murderer?

: THE FILMS OF ALFRED HITCHCOCK

A selection of feature films directed by the master of suspense
This week:
Shadow of a Doubt starring
JOSEPH COTTEN
TERESA WRIGHT
MACDONALD CAREY with Patricia Collinge Henry Travers Hume Cronyn
Screenplay by THORNTON WILDER ALMA REVILLE , and SALLY BENSON
Based on a story by GORDON MCDONELL Produced by Jack Skirball
A young girl realises that her favourite uncle may be a dangerous fugitive ...
Tonight's movie was regarded by contemporary critics as Hitchcock's best thriller since his departure from Britain in 1939. It was even compared with Orson Welles 's Citizen Kane. Both films contain superb performances from Joseph Cotten , and both employ naturalistic dialogue and have overlapping unrelated conversations going on between several people at once.

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.

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.
