A Short Play.
Specially Written for Broadcasting by J. A. W. Shepherd.
Presented by R. E . JEFFREY .
The Characters concerned are
The action of this play takes place early in the Sixteenth Century, during the Spanish conquest of Mexico.
The commander of the Spanish forces was Cortez, who was received peaceably by Montezuma. ruler of Mexico. Later, both Cortez and his soldiers behaved with such debauchery and treachery that much warfare ensued under the most savage and merciless conditions.
The principal city in Mexico was Aztec, the tribe of that name being the most powerful in Mexico. Their civilisation was an old one, and t hey had amassed great wealth, most of which was in the hands of the priests.
Much bitter guerilla warfare was carried on in Aztec, prisoners captured on either side being subjected to torture and death.
The play concerns the treatment by the Aztec priests of a Spanish officer taken in the act of violating their most sacred altar.FREDERICK CHESTER .(Entertainer).

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
