: The Godfather

Continuing the special two-part presentation of the famous feature film starring Marlon Brando as Don Vito Corleone with Al Pacino as Michael Corleone, James Caan as Sonny Corleone, Richard Castellano as Clemenza, Robert Duvall as Tom Hagen, Richard Conte as Barzini, Diane Keaton as Kay Adams.

After killing the rival gangleader Sollozzo and the corrupt policeman McCluskey, the Corleones' youngest son Michael has to hide from the inevitable underworld and police vengeance - the two being closely linked. Michael flees to Sicily and an idyllic life on a remote farm, where he meets a local girl and falls in love. But the savage events which follow mean that the Corleone family need a new, even more ruthless, Godfather...

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

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
