Film International: Bona


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.
Nora Aunor
Philippe Salvador
Bona idolises Gardo, a handsome young actor, and is overwhelmed when he condescends to notice her. Defying her respectable family, she moves into Gardo's home. Life with a movie star, however, is hardly the romance that Bona imagines.
Lino Brocka made his name at home as a prolific director of box office successes but has won international recognition for his acutely observed stories from contemporary Philippine life. Bona is a sharply realistic portrait of a young woman in love and, incidentally, pokes fun at the Philippine film industry.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
