by TONY GOULD with Vladek Sheybal as Conrad and Anthony Jacobs as Marlow Joseph Conrad was in the Congo for only a few months in 1890, but that experience provided the substance of his story Heart of Darkness.
From this and other sources TONY GOULD has reconstructed the events which profoundly influenced the great novelist and left their mark on him for the rest of his life.
But this is also the story of the founding of the Congo Free State-that Crusade worthy of this century of progress,' as King Leopold II described it - which became one of the most scandalous examples of colonial exploitation in history. Narrator SEAN BARRETT

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.
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.
