: Harold Pinter's Betrayal

continues a season of films new to television starring
Brilliantly transposed to the screen by its original author, Harold Pinter 's scathing view of the mores of middle-class marriage relies on a classic standby of cinematic technique - the flashback. The story covers the period from 1980, reaching back to the early 70s as the sequence of betrayals is unfolded. This serio-comic examination of sexual infidelity is brought vividly to life by three of Britain's finest actors and by the skilful and unobtrusive direction of David Jones.
Screenplay by HAROLD PINTER based on his own play
Produced by SAM SPIEGEL Directed by DAVID JONES

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.
