Three talks by Charles Cape
As the son of a missionary, Charles Cape spent his childhood near Benares, the sacred city of the Hindus, making much the same kind of friends as Kipling's Kim. In this talk he describes how he persuaded an old sorcerer from the outcast tribe of the Doms to disclose some of the secrets of his technique.

Five programmes based on the journals of Jeremiah Goldswain
Adapted and introduced by Anthony Delius
Reader, Bernard Miles
5: 'An End of a Beginning'
Jeremiah Goldswain was a sawyer who left Great Marlow at the age of seventeen to become.one of the '1820 Settlers' in the Eastern Cape. For nearly forty years he kept a record of the trials and surprises of that first generation in Africa.
This final programme tells of the beginning of many tragic skirmishes between Boer and Briton; and the hostility between white and black takes a strange turning - the great 'cattle killing madness' of the Xhosa people of exactly a hundred years ago.
The journals were edited by Una Long, and published by the Van Riebeeck Society of South Africa.
