: The New Pacific

4: Return to Paradise
The electronic media are rapidly shrinking the vast distances of the Pacific and making human isolation a thing of the past. Satellite television and video cassettes have reached the remotest Pacific island, but they are a mixed blessing.
Films and videos are usually packaged in Los Angeles,
Tokyo, or London and they are often aggressively commercial. To island leaders they are 'electronic imperialism', to the Chinese 'spiritual pollution'.
There is a danger that the people of the Pacific will imitate what they see on TV and abandon their own traditional way of doing things, but today there is cause for optimism. The
Japanese have shown that foreign ideas may be imported without losing national identity and others are determined to follow their lead.
Throughout the islands of the South Pacific, the people are rallying to the defence of their language and culture. Narrated by Peter France Film editor MALCOLM DANIEL Produced and directed by MICHAEL MACINTYRE

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.
