with The original film, adapted from Mario Puzo 's best-selling novel about the American-Italian ' families' of the post-war years, is far more than a story of gangsterdom, brutality and revenge; it is also a story of family life and honour, of old world values and new wealth, and about the corruption of power which affects all levels of society. The film opens with the lavish wedding of Don Corleone 's daughter. Connie. Guests come from far and wide bringing gifts and pledges-but also to ask for favours. For on this special day the Godfather will refuse no one, whatever the cost or nature of their request ...

: Everyman

This week: Rastaman
Vanya Kewley reports from Jamaica on the marijuana-smoking Rastafarians who believe that the late Haile Selassie of Ethiopia is God. Everyman explores the controvers I beliefs and life-style of these ferocious-looking ' dread-locks ' in the Dungle (dung heap) of downtown Kingston, films their ' ganja ' (marijuana) ceremonies, and looks at how their vision, music and painting are influencing Jamaica, from the music of BOB MARLEY to the new ballets of the JAMAICA NATIONAL DANCE THEATRE. As the Prime Minister, Michael Manley , says in the programme: ' By making Haile Selassie the Christ figure, the Rastafarian reconnects Africa and black with the Christian message . , .Rastafarians have this tremendous inner peace and sense of certainty about their identity which is not true about most other Jamaicans.'

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
