The Late Film: Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia


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.
starring I Warren Oates Isela Vega
Tortured to reveal the name of her lover, the young daughter of General El Jefe gives the name of Alfredo Garcia. The wealthy landowner offers a million dollars in exchange for Garcia's head. The ensuing search takes four of his henchmen and a down-and-out pianist, Bennie, into the depths of Mexico where their greed and animosity lead to murder and a savage confrontation. Director Sam Peckinpah has created a characteristic world of treacherous relationships and a study in obsession bordering on insanity.
Produced by MARTIN BAUM Directed by SAM PECKINPAH

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.
