: Volcanoes of Hawaii -Islands of Fire

From the molten rock that spews out of fissures on the ocean bed, the goddess Pele creates the volcanic islands of Hawaii, and eventually they disappear once more, worn down by time and tide.
Hawaii-based film-makers
Paul Atkins and Mike deGruy braved sharks, tidal waves and underwater explosions of lava to explore the underworld of the volcanoes.
When the lava erupts, the sea can boil and reefs catch fire. In one such violent blast the intrepid pair were swept hundreds of yards out to sea, being tossed around in a swirling avalanche of red-hot fragments. Miraculously, they escaped serious injury.
These islands, home to albatrosses, carnivorous finches, seal, moray eels and manta rays, also comprise one of the world' s most extensive mountain ranges, with some peaks more than five miles above the ocean floor. The film captures the dramatic contrasts of a region that includes both coral sands and icy peaks. Producer Keenan Smart First shown on BBC2

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.
