King Solomon's Mines: BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation by H. Rider Haggard

Tim McInnerny stars as Allan Quatermaine in this dramatic full-cast BBC Radio 4 adaptation of H Rider Haggard's classic Victorian novel.

A chance meeting with Sir Henry Curtis and his friend John Good leads professional game hunter Allan Quatermaine on a dangerous expedition to the uncharted, hostile heart of Africa. Curtis's brother disappeared while searching for the legendary diamond mine of King Solomon, and he needs Quatermaine's expertise to re-trace his brother's journey. Quatermaine agrees to Curtis's generous terms, on the condition that the money is paid to his son if he does not survive.

Joined by the imposing, mysterious Zulu Umbopa, the trio set off into the unknown. As they journey from the barren desert to the precipitous mountains, they discover clues from a past adventurer, now dead - and come close to death themselves.

They encounter fierce Kukuana warriors, the beautiful Foulata, the blood-thirsty King Twala and his ancient, evil witch-finder Gagool - but will they find the mine and the treasure that is rumoured to lie within it? And if they do, will they make it out alive?

This vivid dramatisation of Haggard's popular adventure story is a combination of thrilling treasure hunt, suspenseful mystery and gripping psychological drama.

Among the cast are Sope Dirisu and Adjoa Andoh.

Duration: 2 hours approx.
