Comedy about the culture clash between the British and natives on the island of 'Samolo'.

Passions run high in the usually sleepy little South Sea island of Samolo over a proposal to build a public convenience.

But passions of quite another sort rage in the rugged breast of young Hali Alani whenever he sees the lovely Lady Sandra, the Governor's wife...

Noel Coward's witty but affectionate satire on the British rulers and the native ruled.

Stars Hugh Burden as Boffin, Nigel Greave as Captain Mortlock, Michael Denison as Sir George Shotter, Moira Lister as Lady Alexandra, Tony Osoba as Hali Alani, Lockwood West as Edward Honey, Margaretta Scott as Cuckoo Honey, Bryan Pringle as Punalo Alani and Leonard Fenton as Sanyamo.

Producer: David Johnston

First broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in 1980.
