Cecil Rhodes , Anglican vicar's son from Bishop's Stortford, went out to South Africa at the age of 17; he had weak lungs and it was thought that the long sea journey would do him good. He died 32 years later, an empire builder and a multi-millionaire with several hundred thousand square miles of the earth's surface in his own name.
Kenneth Griffith , best known as an actor, has a passionate interest in the old British Empire and especially Britain's involvement in Southern Africa. Indeed, his house in Canonbury bulges with a million letters and postcards about the military aspect of the Empire. This film was his conception and in it he narrates dramatically the story of Rhodes's influence in Africa.
It is a story which will shock many people who still regard Cecil Rhodes as a man of great moral fibre who sought, for the highest principles, to spread Britain's ' sphere of influence.'

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.
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.
