: A Taste for Adventure Cry of Nukumanu

The Story of a Pacific Atoll
Nukumanu is a tiny ring of reef and sand, scarcely a dot on a map of the Pacific. Travellers never go to Nukumanu. But this atoll is the home of 270 souls marooned on a sliver of coral, almost as inevitably as if they had been abandoned there long ago from some pirate ship.
Until recently they have been happy, sustained by the slender resources of the land and the richer harvest of the sea. Today the fragile balance has been broken: the young men have been drawn away to New Guinea or the Solomon Islands, leaving too few hands for village work. Narrator RICHARD OXENBURGH

Tonight - Starting work: A leap in the dark? "The more we educate, it seems, the vaguer school-leavers are becoming about their future careers. They wander unarmed into the jungle of industrial society: to the tiger they are merely fodder."
(Professor Michael Carter)
This week nearly half a million children will be leaving school for good. For most of them four or five years of secondary education will now be followed by a lifetime at work.
Tonight Panorama looks at Careers Guidance both inside and outside of school to discover why, for the vast majority of school leavers, this week will mark the beginning of a series of unhappy, wasteful and often painful accidents as they enter the world of work.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
