Conclusion:
' The Night of Drums '
Produced by David Davis
You have already heard how, in 1853, Jeremy Shafto found his friend Andre was the prisoner of their old enemy Calamanco, who 'had set 'himself up as a sort of king among the Maroons of the wild Cockpit Country. Andre had been drugged with secret mixture of herbs whidh had made him lose his memory and become the Mexican Pablo Rivas. So bitter was Jeremy's anger that not only did he force the old Obeah-woman to give him the antidote to the poison but, against everybody's advice, he insisted on denouncing her in public as a fraud- bad mistake, as he soon discovered.

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.
