Return of the Fur Seal
' The seals that fought back from the edge of extinction.'
Narrated by DAVID ATTENBOROUGH Summer comes to a remote sub-Antarctic bay. From the freezing waters the males battle for coveted patches of beach. Heavily pregnant, the females arrive and within days the bay is alive with woolly black pups.
Once they were slaughtered in millions for their fur. Now, unmolested by man, the islands ring to the calls of thousands of cows and their young.

: The Long Walk of Fred Young

Omnibus tells the extraordinary story of a man caught between two worlds. Son of Fox was a Navajo Indian who survived in his youth by hunting rabbits and crows, and gathering roots and seeds in the mountains of the American South-west. He spoke no English, had never even seen a white man.
Today, he is Dr Frederick Young , a nuclear physicist working on laser-initiated nuclear fusion. Within the space of a single lifetime, FRED YOUNG has bridged almost the entire span of human development.
Today, when the stress of moving between the two cultures becomes too great, he still goes back to the medicine men of his own tribe, who - ironically - view his work in the white man's world with suspicion.
In the film, we meet his brother, who spends his time between the bars and jails of Arizona, and his relatives, who live in traditional hogans in the desert. Where does Fred Young now stand, working within a culture that has almost totally exterminated his own heritage and his own people?

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.
