This is the name given to the remote and beautiful North-East coast of Greenland part of the largest National Park In the world. It is locked in Ice for most of the year but, in the cloudless summer days of 24-hour sunshine, it is full of life: flowers, insects and migrating birds from Britain, as well as the resilient musk-oxen and polar bears. John Arnott talks to some of the few residents and to visiting scientists and explorers, and examines how life can survive in such a harsh environment.

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.
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.
