The McGuffin on Radio Four
Hitchcock built some of his most suspenseful films around what he called ‘The McGuffin’ which was, in effect, nothing. McGuffin-like stories have been commissioned this week for Radio Four's Afternoon Readings, including one from me: 'Night's High Noon', this Thursday 9th November, 3.30pm. It's midsummer on Orkney, and a strange contest is underway to find a mythical creature of the sea.
