: Jack Lemmon in The War Between Men and Women

with Barbara Harris
Peter Wilson , a brilliant writer and cartoonist, avoids and allegedly detests women. But a chance meeting - due to his massive shortsightedness - sends him into the arms of an attractive assistant at an eye specialist....
Humour and romantic complications are the order of the day in this cynical, occasionally abrasive comedy, based on the writings of James Thurber. A character brilliantly portrayed by Jack Lemmon in his inimitable bitter-comic style.
Screenplay by MELVILLE SHAVELSON and DANNY ARNOLD
Produced by DANNY ARNOLD

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
