The a/c returned from a sector recce but when the undercarriage was selected down the starboard indicator light showed red. Despite several reselections and yawing the a/c, three greens could not be obtained and ATC advised the starboard leg was not down. The pilot was instructed to make a wheels-up landing which he did safely.
