: The Orson Welles Story

To celebrate the 70th birthday of the legendary figure, Arena presents a second showing of its highly acclaimed film profile. In this exclusive two-part interview, Orson Welles talks to
Leslie Megahey with unprecedented frankness and detail about his early life, the heady days of the Mercury Theatre and Citizen Kane , his turbulent career in Hollywood, and his unfinished projects and unfulfilled dreams. To his critics, Welles is a burnt-out star, wasting his huge talent on cameo roles, commercials, and film projects that never see the light of day. His admirers see him as a brilliant, idiosyncratic artist, still battling against an industry he once took by storm. He's certainly one of the true geniuses in cinema, and, as he talked to Arena in Las Vegas from dawn to dusk, one of the most compelling and entertaining storytellers of our time.
Also featuring Jeanne Moreau Anthony Perkins
Peter Bogdanovich Charlton Heston Robert Wise
I doubt if there has been a movie interview to compare with it: the greatest performance Welles has ever given, whatever the size of the screen.

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.
