The Godfather


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 award-winning film directed by Francis Ford Coppola, tonight shown in its full version.
Starring Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, James Caan, Robert Duvall, Diane Keaton

Long Island, 1945: Don Corleone's daughter, Connie, is to be married. For the 'Godfather' it is a time of celebration - the war is over and America is up for grabs. Guests come from far and wide, pledging gifts to the bride and groom - and asking favours that the Godfather is bound to grant on this special day.
(James Caan is in Naked Hollywood tomorrow at 8.05pm. Godfather II will be shown next Saturday)

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.
