: Uncle Sam's Backyard

A four-part series about American power, and challenges to it, in the Caribbean area.
3: Puerto Rico: Who wants to be in America?
'The United States is the foremost colonial power in the world because it has the most important colony in the world, which is Puerto Rico.' RUBEN BERRIOS
(Independence Party)
Puerto Rico is a full-blown American colony and playground in the Caribbean. Its citizens, holding American passports, have flooded into mainland cities for work and all that the United States has to offer. Now, a powerful movement is under way to make the island the fifty-first State and give its people equal rights.
But growing too is an increasingly violent campaign to rid Puerto Rico entirely of United States domination. Bombings on the island and in mainland cities have killed many.
Puerto Rico is of major strategic importance to the United States and provides a huge naval base in this tense area of the world.
Bernard Falk reports on why America needs an island which could become the Ulster of the Caribbean.

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.
