The Beach of Falesa
AIRED:

Wiltshire is the third man sent by a trading company to work on a small Polynesian island; the previous two had strangely died. Upon arriving he encounters his competetor, Case, a man determined to keep the island to himself. Months later after Wiltshire marries a native woman, the natives refuse to trade with him because Case has convinced the superstious people that the woman is "taboo" and cursed. Wiltshire refuses to leave the island as Case wants and takes him on in the jungle.

      • Shortly before this dramatization was televised, the same story was being planned as a British film, based on a screenplay by the poet Dylan Thomas. The plan was dropped by the time of Thomas's early death in 1953, but his screenplay was published a decade later and optioned by Richard Burton, who planned to direct and co-star with James Mason in a new film version. However, this plan was also abandoned and no cinema version of the story has yet been made.
