: 'Gallows' Key'

Some further adventures of Captain Blood
By RAFAEL SABATINI
A Radio Play adapted from
The Chronicles of Captain Blood by FROOM TYLER
Produced by CYRIL WOOD
Principal Characters
Jeremy Pitt ,
Shipmaster Monsieur D'Ogeron , Representative of the French West India Company, and Governor of Tortuga, haven of buccaneers
Captain Easterling, 'as nasty a scoundrel as ever sailed the Caribbean '
Cahusac, French ruffian Sam, English ruffian
Captain Crosby Pike , of the brigantine
Valiant, and Captain Blood, formerly Peter Blood ,
M.D., of Bridgwater, Somerset
The adventures begin in Tortuga, and end off a rocky island known as Gallows' Key. This island ' forms part of the group known as the Albuquerque Keys, lying in twelve degrees northern latitude and eighty-five degrees western longitude, some sixty miles north-west of Porto Bello ' .
Listeners were first introduced to
Captain Blood over the microphone last
December. On that occasion the story of Captain Blood was told from his early days in Somerset, through his adventures on the high seas as a buccaneer, and continuing up to the time of his falling in love and (presumably) settling down to an uneventful life of living happily ever after. The story of his latter end has (so far as is known) still to be written and so no one can say whether or not it would make a thrilling radio play.
Seeing, therefore, that he could not continue the story of Captain Blood where it left off in the last broadcast. Froom Tyler has returned for his material in ' Gallows' Key' to the earlier part of Blood's life, before the famous buccaneer found love and respectability.

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.
