: Fine Cut I Am a Sex Addict

The peculiarly American delight in talking about oneself is taken to extremes as a series of self-confessed sex addicts bravely discuss this dominant aspect of their lives.
Intellectual weight is provided by the author Hubert Selby Jr , who achieved fame and notoriety with Last Exit to Brooklyn. He justifies an obsession with sex as an escape fromunhappiness: "Life becomes unbearable and people are always looking to get out of that pain."
Among the nymphomaniacs and sado-masochists, the most touching contributions come from a hugely overweight woman who calmly recalls multiple rape - "They called me the Viking because I had such endurance" - before she became the star of such movie epics as Tons of Buns.
The film is occasionally lightened by humour, as when the bondage enthusiast pulls an item from his bag of equipment: "That's my dog's collar- I don't know why it's in there!"
Producers Vikram Jayanti and John Powers Series editor Andre Singer

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.
