Beyond Deterrence
Death rays, space-based lasers, and computers smart enough to fight battles on their own-these are the exotic new weapons President Reagan has ordered his military scientists to perfect. They are designed to prevent Soviet missiles from striking the United States, taking the West into a new defence strategy beyond the balance of terror.
As the crucial Arms Control Talks resume in Geneva Tom Mangold examines how close to reality the President's vision has come, and whether the effect of the new weapons will be to end the fear of nuclear war, or destabilise still further the superpower game.

: Newseries The Godfather

The complete story MARIO puzo's novel adapted for television in four parts starring
Part 1
1901: Escaping from Sicily after witnessing the slaying of his family in a bloody vendetta, eight-year-old Vito Corleone arrives in New York. There, living in the Italian community, he drifts into a life of petty crime - the first step in a career that is to make him the most feared and powerful figure in America's underworld.
In this masterly re-shaping of his two Oscar-winning feature films incorporating footage not seen in the original movies, director Francis Ford Coppola transcends the basic story of gangsterdom and violence, creating a vivid portrait of Italian-American family life while examining the nature of power at its most evil and corrupt.
Screenplay by MARIO puzo and FRANCIS FORD COPPOLA
Produced by ALBERT S. RUDDY and FRANCIS FORD COPPOLA Directed by FRANCIS FORD COPPOLA

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.

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.
