Three set off in the cold still air
With an apple or two (and plenty to wear)
And one jumped high, and one jumped low,
And one walked backwards as far as he could go.

: The Late Film: Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia

Starring Warren Oates, Isela Vega

Tortured to reveal the name of her lover, the young daughter of General El Jefe gives the name of Alfredo Garcia. The wealthy landowner offers a million dollars in exchange for Garcia's head. The ensuing search takes four of his henchmen and a down-and-out pianist, Bennie, into the depths of Mexico where their greed and animosity lead to murder and a savage confrontation. Director Sam Peckinpah has created a characteristic world of treacherous relationships and a study in obsession bordering on insanity.

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.
