In 1979 an extraordinary thing happened at the Edinburgh Festival. A totally unknown theatre company, playing Richard III and The Caucasian Chalk Circle in a language no one in the audience understood, took the critics by storm. It was the Rustavellian Theatre Company from Georgia-Georgia in the USSR-not the American home of peanuts and Presidents! The company played in their own language, Georgian, which has been tenaciously protected in spite of Georgia's absorption into the Russian body politic. The theatrical world was astounded. One man was not astounded, for he had known the Georgians for many years. He is an ex-diplomat, ex-politician, ex-guerrilla fighter, Sir Fitzroy Maclean , and it is he who traces the background of the Rustavellian Theatre Company deep into the Caucasus.

Based on a short story by TOLSTOY, set in the 1850s when imperialist Russia was dealing with insurgents in the Caucasus, this film is a celebration of endurance.
Against a wild and mountainous landscape two men, captive and captor, Imperialist officer and brigand chief, confront each other in a battle of wills.
Story told by ALAN DOBIE
English adaptation by PEGGY MILLER Directed by GEORGE KALATOZISHVILI Produced by SOVIET TELEVISION
The famous feature film starring
Long Island, just outside New York City, 1945: Don Corleone 's daughter, Connie, is to be married. For the ' Godfather ' it is a lime of celebration - the war is over and America is up for grabs. Guests come from far and wide, pledging gifts to the bride and groom-while asking favours which the Godfather is bound to grant on this special day. Thus begins one of Hollywood's classic movies, creating a vivid portrait of Italian-Am?rican ' family' life while examining the nature of power at its most evil and corrupt.

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.
