The characters we know from fiction who still live on today. Thirteen programmes which look at figures in an American landscape. 11: The Indian Chief
In the land where, finally, the white man said they would be left in peace Joe de la Cruz, Indian Chief, is leading his people in a fight for their rights - and their dignity. He is Chief of the Quinault Indian tribe in Washington State in the beautiful Pacific North West and, this year, has been elected President of all the Chiefs, of all the tribes in the United States.
One hundred and twenty years ago the Quinault tribe - like so many other Indian tribes - signed a treaty with the white men giving up more than two million acres of land in order to be left in peace on the reservation. They were guaranteed hunting and fishing rights, a guarantee that was never kept. Now they want those rights and have already won a court decision to prove it.
JOE DE LA CRUZ uses lawyers instead of warriors and planning regulations instead of bows and arrows. Already he is spoken of with respect in Washington and the White House.

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.
