Children's Television: Come to the Caribbean: St. Vincent: Green Gold

Synopsis

We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
with Max and Elisabeth Robertson.

On the fifth stage of their Caribbean journey, Max and Elisabeth visit an arrowroot plantation to watch starch being made, and a banana estate where the island's 'green gold' is gathered.
At the Botanical Gardens in Kings-town they see one of the breadfruit trees brought from the South Sea Islands in 1793 by Captain Bligh of the Bounty.
From St. Vincent they sail off in the coastal cruiser Madinina, towards the tiny island of Bequira in the Grenadines.

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.

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