: Film 92 Special

Barry Norman talks to Michelle Pfeiffer
In an industry noted for its lack of good women's roles,
Michelle Pfeiffer has carved a niche for herself to rival Meryl Streep and Glenn Close. In recent years starring roles in films like The Fabulous
Baker Boys , The Russia House, and Dangerous Liaisons have displayed the versatility of her acting. In her latest film
Frankie andjohnny she plays a dowdy waitress in a New York coffee shop who falls in love with an ageing cook, played by Al Pacino. She is a very private person, avoiding the celebrity circuit and the partying of the LA scene. Talking about her looks, she once compared herself to a duck! The interview was recorded in Los Angeles, where she is filming her role as Catwoman in the Batman sequel. Director Liz Hartford
Producer Bruce Thompson ● STEREO

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.
