2/2. Nuuk, the capital of Greenland, is a startling mix of traditional culture and modern urban problems. Visitors can watch the Northern Lights to the accompaniment of drunken heckling in the city centre behind them, and spot whales just yards from blocks of depressed social housing.

Clive Anderson discovers that open prisons are the only prisons in Greenland, as he concludes his investigation into the way the law there is implemented. Producer Sarah Jane Hall

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.
