The Godfather

on BBC One London

Continuing the special two-part presentation of the famous feature film starring Marlon Brando as Don Vito Corleone with Al Pacino as Michael Corleone, James Caan as Sonny Corleone, Richard Castellano as Clemenza, Robert Duvall as Tom Hagen, Richard Conte as Barzini, Diane Keaton as Kay Adams.

After killing the rival gangleader Sollozzo and the corrupt policeman McCluskey, the Corleones' youngest son Michael has to hide from the inevitable underworld and police vengeance - the two being closely linked. Michael flees to Sicily and an idyllic life on a remote farm, where he meets a local girl and falls in love. But the savage events which follow mean that the Corleone family need a new, even more ruthless, Godfather...
