Williwaw is a radio play by David Zane Mairowitz. It was first broadcast on BBC Radio 4 on 02 May 2003, as an installment of the Afternoon Play[1].


The naturalist Georg Steller sailed on Bering's disastrous 1741 expedition from Siberia to Alaska. Bering and many of the sailors died from scurvy after their ship was marooned for nine months on a bleak and uninhabited island. Steller discovered a number of new animal species, but was unable to bring any of his specimens back to Russia.
