Six Radioviews of Love and War in Northern Africa, founded on "Ouida's" famous novel, "Under Two Flags."
By Amyas Young.
Directed by R. E. JEFFREY.
Time : The Period of the Second Empire.
For the purpose of this production, only those scenes laid in Algeria have been taken. Listeners are told the story of Bertie Cecil , the rightful head of the House of Royallieu, who endured long years as a trooper in the Chasseurs d'Afrique, that he might save the family name, the honour of which had been prejudiced by his brother's fault; how he made a name for himself as a warrior respected by friend and foe alike ; how, all unconsciously, he won the love of the vivandiere, Cigarette, and how, for the honour of France, his life was saved by her sacrifice.
