' Apocalypse Now is not about Vietnam. It is Vietnam. It's what it was really like. It was crazy, and the way we made it was very much like the way the Americans were in Vietnam. There were too many of us, we had access to too much money, too much equipment, and little by little we went insane.'
(FRANCIS FORD COPPOLA )
The Vietnam conflict was one of the most bitterly resented wars in American history, raising huge moral issues for the nation to confront. In the week that Coppola's epic Vietnam film opens in London, Paul Vaughan looks at the artistic response of the new generation of writers and film makers to those issues.

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.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
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.
