: Darwin's Nightmare

How the cannibalism of the Nile perch provides a pithy metaphor for the West's ecological destruction. An Oscar-nominated Storyville film.

Darwin's Nightmare
10.00pm BBC4
Anyone inspired by Live 8 should watch this grim picture of the reality of international trade with Africa.
Lake Victoria once teemed with native African aquatic life, but the introduction of Nile perch around 1960 changed all that. This disturbing film demonstrates how the giant perch has distorted economic life in Tanzania. Now it's fished for cash and exported to Europe from an airstrip littered with the skeletons of crashed aircraft. Local fishermen and Russian pilots are at the top of the food chain but most languish in terrible poverty. Rough and ready in places, this heartbreaking film makes it clear exactly how the West lives off the fat of Africa. (Geoff Ellis)

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.
