: The Man You Loved to Hate

In celebration of the centenary of Erich von
Stroheim's birth and the London West End release of his 'lost' masterpiece Queen Kelly, BBC2 presents a film portrait of one of the cinema's most controversial and tragic figures.
Von Stroheim was dubbed 'The Man You Love to
Hate' for his portrayals of stiff-necked Prussian officers.
He went on to direct some of the silent screen's most remarkable films, but his wildly extravagant productions brought him into conflict with the studio bosses.
This programme looks at his extraordinary lifestyle and wayward talent.
Narrated by Edward Binns Written by RICHARD KOSZARSK 1 Directed by PATRICK MONTGOMERY (R)
(Gambling Hell starring Erich von Stroheim tomorrow on BBC2)

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.
