Peter Noble's 'Movie-Go-Round' film star interviews from the 1950s and 60s.

"You can't have suspense without information" - Alfred Hitchcock on making films

"At first I thought they're going to need subtitles in the picture" - Shelley Winters on Michael Caine's cockney accent in 'Alfie'.

"Milligan and I are both manic depressives" - Peter Sellers.

Alfred Hitchcock, Shelley Winters, Peter Sellers, Sammy Davis Jr, Richard Burton, David Niven, Vincent Price, Sean Connery, Shirley Maclaine, Joan Greenwood, Paul McCartney and John Lennon. These are just some of the big name interviewees featuring in this hugely entertaining review of the work of interviewer Peter Noble.

Long before BBC 1's Film review show, film fans' main port of call was Movie-Go-Round which ran on the BBC Light Programme/ Radio 2 on Sunday afternoons from 1956 to 1969.

Travelling around the globe, the programme's film location reporter Peter Noble chatted to the superstars and directors of the day. Tragically none of the original programmes were saved in the BBC archive, but luckily Peter held onto all his irreplaceable taped interviews.

Not heard since 1995, this look back with Movie-Go-Round's original host Peter Haigh showcases film-fan Peter Noble's love of cinema with the best of his vast personal collection of tapes.

Producer: Barry Littlechild
First broadcast on BBC Radio 2 in 1995.
