by RUDYARD KIPLING adapted for radio by A. R. RAWLINSON
Famine is still the scourge of India, as it has been since time immemorial. As a ' cub ' reporter in the days of the Raj, Rudyard Kipling personally experienced Famine Relief work, and in this play he has used his experience to provide the vividly contrasting background to the love-story of Scott and his ' William.' It is a very English love-story, true to its period in the 1890s when Victorian ethics and convention ruled supreme.

How successful has the ' irreversible experiment of Bantu self-government been? At what cost has it been pursued? And what weight attaches to those questioning voices which in the last few years have been raised within the ruling party?
Produced by GEORGE FISCHER

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.
