Like No Place on Earth The story of the Island of Surtsey
In November 1963 fishermen sailing off the south coast of Iceland saw smoke rising from the ocean. A volcanic eruption had split open the seabed. Ash and steam followed the smoke.
Later came molten lava. The Island of Surtsey was born.
Today, it is a black, apparently lifeless, mound in the North
Atlantic. Sightseers are banned. but, with the help of scientists and nearby islanders, Margaret Horsfield made the trip, to discover an eerie unspoilt world which is still a battleground for the forces of nature.

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.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
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.
