by TONY GOULD with Vladek Sheybal as Conrad and Anthony Jacobs as Marlow Joseph Conrad was in the Congo for only a few months in 1890, but that experience provided the substance of his story Heart of Darkness.

From this and other sources TONY GOULD has reconstructed the events which profoundly influenced the great novelist and left their mark on him for the rest of his life.

But this is also the story of the founding of the Congo Free State-that Crusade worthy of this century of progress,' as King Leopold II described it - which became one of the most scandalous examples of colonial exploitation in history. Narrator SEAN BARRETT
