: Francis Ford Coppola's Apocalypse Now

starring
Vietnam: a US army captain is given a 'mission to kill'. His assignment is to track down the renegade Col Kurtz who has established his own 'empire' in the jungle. This masterly film, freely adapted from Joseph Conrad 's novel The Heart of Darkness, 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, 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.
