    Why do you refer to the islands by their colonized name and then their actual name in parenthesis? Shouldn’t it be the other way around? For example, Kiribati (once called Ellice Islands).

      Interesting point and the person who wrote it is the expert and very away of that more normal formulation. The way I read it is that he is using the old terms because he is writing about 1937 — in an “as it was then” sense. I will point your view out to him though. It’s more of a historical way of saying it than trying to avoid the modern term.

      Thanks. We we aware of that and thought it was adequately explained but I have added an additional link to a Variety piece which makes clear the History Channel ultimately questioned its own work in the story/photograph.
