: Hitchcock's To Catch a Thief

An 80th Birthday Tribute starring
Cary Grant Grace Kelly
A famous jewel thief -'The Cat* -retires to the French Riviera to enjoy his ill-gotten wealth. But his ' retirement' is disturbed when another thief starts imitating his style and the police come too close for comfort.
This glamorous thriller continues a characteristic Hitchcock hero/ blonde relationship, where rivalry turns to romance amidst a setting of danger and intrigue.
Cary Grant and Grace Kelly had earlier worked with Alfred Hitchcock, and are ideally cast in the central romantic roles of this location-made movie.
Screenplay by JOHN M. HAYES
Based on the novel by DAVID DODGE Produced and directed by ALFRED HITCHCOCK. Films: page 18

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
