: Victim of Love

Thriller starring
Pierce Brosnan
JoBeth Williams
Virginia Madsen
Romanced by debonair
Paul Tomlinson , successful psychologist
Tess Palmer succumbs to his charms.
However, one of her patients, Carla, has been unbalanced by just such a relationship, and just such a man - perhaps Paul himself. As coincidence leads to conjecture, Tess learns more than she cares to about Paul, the youngerwoman, and the recently deceased Mrs Tomlinson.
The three points of the lethal love triangle are JoBeth Williams , star of the first Poltergeist movies,
Pierce Brosnan - the new James Bond - and the heroine of horror hit Candyman, Virginia Madsen.
Director Jerry London (1991)

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.
