Sidney Lumet Directs: Serpico


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 Al Pacino
John Randolph Based on the true story of Frank Serpico - a New York cop who became a renegade to his colleagues because of his refusal to work their system of bribery and corruption.
Transferred to undercover work, Serpico's idealism and unconventional behaviour further isolate him from the force and place his life in danger from all sides.

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.
