Dramatised by Elwyn Jones
[Starring] Keith Barron as Jean Charvin, John Glyn-Jones as Monsieur Jean-Paul Giradous, John Phillips as The Commandant

Jean Charvin is a personable, industrious, and intelligent young man. He was honourably discharged from the army after a series of unprecedented rapid promotions. His employer considers him both upright and honourable and his work to be outstanding. Family friends vouched that he and his young bride, Marie Louise, were blissfully happy. Yet she was killed by a savage blow from an Indian club. Jean insists that it was an accident, that he hit Marie Louise while exercising, but medical evidence proves otherwise. Why did Jean kill his wife? The answer is found while Jean serves his sentence in a brutal French penal colony.
