Hitchcock's The Blind Man2015103120161226 (R4)

The world premiere of Alfred Hitchcock and Ernest Lehman's unfinished screenplay, the follow-up to North by Northwest - now completed by Mark Gatiss.

Adapted for radio by Laurence Bowen.

Set in 1961, a famous blind jazz pianist, Larry Keating, agrees to a radical new medical procedure - an eye transplant. The operation is a success but his new eyes are those of a murdered man, and captured on their retina is the image of his murderer. Larry and his new nurse, Jenny, begin a quest to track him down - before someone else dies.
