: Wildlife on One: The Bird That Beat the US Navy

A series of eight animal films Introduced by David Attenborough
Once, on a tiny coral atoll in the middle of the South Pacific, the US Navy fought - and lost - a battle against birds. They burnt flares, fired bazookas and even blew up the birds with shrapnel bombs. Some died, a few moved off... and more came back to breed again.
It was the gooney birds of Midway Atoll that beat the US Navy.
Now the sailors have not only learnt to live with them, but to love them as well... there are gooney bird badges and T-shirts, gooney parties and gooney golf balls. Gooney mania is a widespread condition and the gooney, the most beautiful Laysan albatross, has become the emblem of the island.

: Go Tell it to the Judge

Last December it ended. Judgment was finally given in the longest and most expensive case this country has known.
This week they are working out the implications of the decision. No one ever thought that 3,000 remote Pacific islanders would have the nerve to take Great Britain to the High Court. But they did. The Banabans of Ocean Island -a mere dot in the mid-Pacific - claim that they have been exploited all along the line for 76 years because their island turned out to be full of phosphate.
Judge Megarry and his band of lawyers went on a trip to the South Seas to view Ocean Island for themselves. Go Tell it to the Judge traces the extraordinary story of the Banabans, from 1900 when the phosphate was discovered, to today when the island resembles the moon landscape, its people deported and the British Government morally condemned in a court of law.

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.
