The Italian Film: Picone Sent Me


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.
(Mi manda Picone) starring
Giancarlo Giannini Lina Sastri
Salvatore lives from hand to mouth as an unauthorised one-man information service in a Naples hospital. When Luciella Picone comes looking for her husband's body, Salvatore is anxious to help - especially since he sees a chance of taking over Picone's Mafia business.
Nanni Loy's accomplished comedy thriller shows the underside of life in Naples where every municipal service has its thriving unofficial counterpart.
The film has been nominated for an Oscar as this year's best foreign film.
(An Italian film with English subtitles. First showing on British television)

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.
