: Inside Story

The Dream Dealer. Howard Marks was an underworld myth: drugs trafficker, fugitive and Oxford graduate famous for his impersonations of Elvis Presley. For years, he eluded the law. His wealth and charm were legendary. He was untouchable: a middle-class outlaw. He came to obsess and repel Craig Lovato of the US Drug Enforcement
Administration. Lovato determined to track him down. The key would be Lord Moynihan, an exiled peer who ran massage parlours in steamy Asian cities. He was persuaded to betray his old friend Howard Marks by recording their private conversations on a hidden tape recorder. This would be a manhunt like no other. Director Christopher Olgiati
Executive producer Paul Hamann 0 CEEFAX SUBTITLES

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.
