Mafia Wars


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
The Godfather of Two Worlds In Bermuda, a Learjet lands with millions of dollars in smuggled heroin profits ... In Miami, a Mafia hitman guards a heroin shipment with a shotgun that fires nails....
At a safe house in New York, guarded 24 hours a day, a Mafia boss talks ...
Once, Tommaso Buscetta was called 'Godfather of two worlds' - overlapping crime empires in Sicily and America. He was suspected of major heroin deals.
According to Mafia legend, he could kill, then visit the opera as if nothing had happened. In a war for control of the heroin trade, rival Mafia chiefs ordered his sons murdered. The vengeance Buscetta planned was simple - and unique. He would destroy the Mafia. In the first of two parts,
Mafia Wars documents the murderous feud that engulfed Buscetta - and how his betrayal of the Mafia destroyed the most lucrative heroin network in history: the Pizza Connection.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
