: Omnibus

Hitchcock
A two-part documentary profile
2: Sex, Murder and Mayhem 'A lot of people think I'm a monster. They don't care to be associated with me because of the nature of the work one does....'
By the late 50s, when he made NorthbyNorthwest,
Alfred Hitchcock was the best-known film director in the world, celebrated equally for adventure thrillers and for the psychological suspense stories that he had been making since he started directing films in Britain in the 20s.
Tonight's Omnibus looks behind the image of the droll clown, which he presented in his television series, and at the achievements, and the problems, of the later years. Drawing on television interviews with Hitchcock, the recollections of colleagues and friends, and scenes from his films; the programme explores his relations with his female stars, the brilliance of his film technique, the difficult role of his scriptwriters, and the ambiguous character of Hitchcock himself, showman, practical joker and film-maker of genius.

: The Late Film: The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz

O starring
Richard Dreyfuss Micheline Lanctot Jack Warden
When Duddy graduates from high school in 1948, he determines to be somebody - and he's not exactly scrupulous about how his ambitions are fulfilled. He spurns work in the rag trade with rich Uncle Benjamin and starts looking for room at the top.... This richly comic movie follows Duddy's career from waiter to film producer and finally to property tycoon. An apprenticeship in the harsh realities of the world which leaves Duddy older, richer and much wiser.
Screenplay from the novel by MORDECAI RICHLER
Produced by JOHN KEMENY Directed by TED KOTCHEFF

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.
