A play for radio by Angela Petter based on an Indian legend
Production by Christopher Sykes
A King has pledged himself to go to the burning-ground (the cemetery where me dead are burned and criminals hanged) on the night of the New Moon, taking nothing with him but his sword. How this rash but just King encounters his other sell in the form of an evil necromancer and discharges the debt so cunningly laid upon him is a tale well known in India and the East. The source for this play was the ,hort narrative included in a posthumous collection of studies by Heinrich Zimmer , The King and the Corpse.

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.
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.
