Five programmes based on the journals of Jeremiah Goldswain
Adapted and introduced by Anthony Delius
Reader, Bernard Miles
5: 'An End of a Beginning'
Jeremiah Goldswain was a sawyer who left Great Marlow at the age of seventeen to become.one of the '1820 Settlers' in the Eastern Cape. For nearly forty years he kept a record of the trials and surprises of that first generation in Africa.
This final programme tells of the beginning of many tragic skirmishes between Boer and Briton; and the hostility between white and black takes a strange turning - the great 'cattle killing madness' of the Xhosa people of exactly a hundred years ago.
The journals were edited by Una Long, and published by the Van Riebeeck Society of South Africa.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

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.
