: Screen Story: The Godfather

The complete story
A second opportunity to see MARIO PUZO's novel adapted for television in five parts.
1: 1901. Fleeing from the carnage of a bloody family vendetta in Sicily, 8-year-old Vito Corleone arrives in New York. For the next few years, Vito's life is one of petty crime - a stepping-stone to a career that will make him the most feared and powerful force in America's underworld. Francis Ford Coppola's brilliant reshaping of his two Oscar-winning feature films creates a vivid portrait of an Italian - American family, for whom love and loyalty exist alongside 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 (Part 2 on Wednesday 10.10pm) (R)

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.
