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)
