: THE GREAT STARS

of yesterday and today in a season of their most memorable films
Tonight: in Two for the See-saw
Screenplay by ISOBEL LENNART
Based on the play by WILLIAM GIBSON
Directed by Robert Wise
Produced by Walter Mirisch
A conventional married lawyer finds himself hilariously involved with a highly unconventional young lady while on a business trip to New York.
Shirley Maclaine proves an inspired choice for the twenty-nine-year-old Jewish beatnik. Her versatility as dancer, comedienne, and dramatic actress combine to make a larger-than-life character. She also inspires Mitchum to give one of the most sympathetic performances of his career. His role in Joseph Losey 's most recent film, Secret Ceremony, underlines the fact that he is one of Holly-wood's most powerful actors.

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.
