: Padre Pio

An updated version of the award-winning film about the life and death of the man they called a saint.
Exactly ten years ago, in September, 1968, a priest called Padre Pio died in a remote convent near Foggia in the South of Italy. For 50 years he had borne on his body five bleeding wounds corresponding to the five wounds of Christ. Countless people believed he worked miracles - that he cured the sick, was capable of being in two places at once, and that he had a terrifying insight into men's minds. One hundred thousand people attended his funeral; they included the local people who loved him and had built a thriving tourist industry during his lifetime. This film, originally made during the last months of Padre Pio's life, revisits the town where he lived to see what has happened in the ten years since his death and investigates the curious fact that after he died it was found that the wounds on his body - the stigmata - had completely disappeared.

Billion Dollar Bubble
Dramatised by TOM CLARKE
The true story of the biggest fraud of all time. A dramatised account of how Equity Funding Corporation of America, a rather over-enterprising Los Angeles insurance company, produced two billion dollars' worth of phoney insurance. In 1969 two young executives used
Equity Funding's computer to balance an error in the company's accounts. But the computer gradually took over. The auditors of the Corporation were so impressed by the computer's printouts that the temptation to escalate the fraud became irresistible.
By 1C73 Equity Funding had become a financial giant rivalling the largest American Corporations. But a number of suspicious auditors were closing in. In comic detail we see the conspirators fobbing them off with increasingly ludicrous ploys. and the story climaxes with the arrest of the computer.

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.
