In the mid 17th century
Scotsmen became active in the Canadian fur trade. Locked in a wilderness thousands of miles from home, separated from their families, they developed complex liaisons with the Canadian Indians. These relationships matured, in isolation, until Scottish women made the arduous transatlantic journey and began to penetrate the Canadian forests. They disturbed an already delicate cultural balance.

First Lady of the Revolution Rosario Murillo is the extraordinary wife of Nicaragua's President Daniel Ortega.
Educated in a convent in Devon and a Swiss finishing school, she's an unlikely revolutionary and the most flamboyant of all the Sandinista leadership. David Henshaw went to
Nicaragua to meet Rosario - poet, cultural commisar and queen of style.
The Sandinistas' 'First Lady' challenges any neat black and white views of what is going on in Nicaragua. The story of Rosario Murillo is the story of a revolution without rules. Written by DAVID HENSHAW Producer JULIE SIMMONS BBC Manchester

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.
