: Chronicle

The Last Tasmanian
Narrated by LEO MCKERN
The Tasmanian Aborigines were totally exterminated last century. It is the only case on record of a genocide so complete and so swift. The British colonists in Tasmania wiped out the whole race within the lifetime of Truganini, who was the last to die in 1876. This programme follows the painstaking search of archaeologist
Dr Rhys Jones to uncover the full story.
The Tasmanians were a different people from the Aborigines m mainland Australia. During 12,000 years of isolation from Australia and the rest of the world Tasmanians went' into reverse , reducing their technology to become the simplest society ever known.
By the time the British arrived, they could not even make fire.
The genocide progressed through bestial atrocities committed by escaping convicts, into full-scale military operations. Even after death the Tasmanians's bodies were stolen from the grave and mutilated.
Rare achievement. (TIME OUT) A horrifying chronicle of greed, cruelty and ignorance. (PHILIP PURSER) The effect was stunning. (NEW SCIENTIST) Superb documentary. (THE AUSTRALIAN) Producer TOM HAYDON Editor BRUCE NORMAN

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.
