Ewing and Barnes. Starring and a special appearance by Part 1. 1951: celebrations at the Southfork barbecue are shattered by a shot and the sight of a drunken 'Digger' Barnes holding a gun.

: Q.E.D.

A Fall from Grace
Everyone makes mistakes. It wouldn't be human not to.
Forgetting keys, burning the toast, missing an appointment ... every day, a succession of tiny disruptions to the usual smooth surface of everyday lives; infuriating, yes, but hardly disastrous.
But what would happen if the same kind of lapses were made on the flight deck of a jumbo, or at the controls of a nuclear power station?

: Sylvester Stallone in Paradise Alley

with Lee Canalito Armand Assante
Hell's Kitchen - New York City, 1946. Three brothers search desperately for a way out of their slum existence. The solution seems to be Vic's enormous strength and ability in the ring. But as success grows, so the brothers grow apart. Only love can save them ...
In his first film as director, Stallone presents a moving portrait of a family and a critical view of the American dream of success. Vivid and compulsively entertaining, this is one of the most remarkable debuts in American cinema.
Screenplay by SYLVESTER STALLONE Produced by JOHN F. ROACH and RONALD A. SUPPA Directed by SYLVESTER STALLONE

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.
