Second of three dark Manhunters dramas exploring tales of beasts eating humans. In this true story from postwar Africa, George Rushby vows to exterminate the man-eating lions that are terrorising Tanzania, but they are unlike any lions he has encountered.
DRAMA: The Man-Eating Lions of Njombe 9.00pm BBC2
In the second of these animal-themed dramas, a gamekeeper in 1940s Tanganyika (now Tanzania) takes on a pride of lions that have acquired a taste for human flesh. An air of mystery and superstition hangs over the lions because the locals believe they are demons of some kind. There's another mystery, too, as to why the BBC's superb natural history unit has turned its hand to making dramas, instead of sticking to what it's good at.
There's an extraordinary true story here, but it deserves so much better. A decent script, for instance; one that isn't riddled with dud dialogue ("You could have died! What about the children?") and maddening plot holes. Poor Tamzin (Bodies) Malleson, usually excellent, plays the gamekeeper's wife, but it's a nothing role and she can do nothing with it.
Luckily, there's some glorious scenery to revel in and the irresistible tug of a dark, primal story. (DB)

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.
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.
