5 October 2022

Benny & Hitch is a brand new BBC radio drama – with live orchestral music – about the extraordinary and explosive relationship between director Alfred Hitchcock and composer Bernard Herrmann.

With tensions growing between the two maverick artists and change afoot in the movie industry, Benny and Hitch’s collaboration and friendship comes to a catastrophic end at a recording session for the film Torn Curtain. But who is really responsible for the break-up? From beyond the grave, Benny and Hitch set out to determine which man has blood on their hands.
Music from Bernard Herrmann’s film scores performed by the BBC Concert Orchestra.

To be recorded 16 October 2022 for a future broadcast.
