: Prince - In Syracuse

A Whistle Test satellite special
Prince - is he a pretentious poseur or the pretender to the throne of American rock? His high-profile appearance at the recent BPI Awards would suggest the former, but reports from the USA indicate an explosive talent. His phenomenal success in the States has made Prince one of the world's most sought after artists.
In the early hours of this morning, his concert in Syracuse, New York State, was beamed live to German television's Rockpalast and BBCtv's Whistle Test. With no tour of Europe planned this may be the only chance for a British audience to see his stage performance. Introduced by David Hepworth

: The Coppola Connection: Apocalypse Now

opens a major season of films by one of Hollywood's greatest directors starring
Vietnam: a US army captain is given a 'mission to kill'. His assignment is to track down the renegade Colonel Kurtz who has established his own 'empire' in the jungle. Freely adapted from JOSEPH CONRAD 'S novel Heart of Darkness, this film proved to be one of the definitive studies of men in war, depicted through the Captain's almost surreal odyssey in search of his victim. Magnificently photographed and staged, this is one of the director's most remarkable and powerful films.

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.
