Treasure Island

Written by Robert Louis Stevenson

Part of the BBC Children's Classics Series

Treasure Island Synopsis

Jack Shepherd and Iain Cuthbertson star in a BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of the classic swashbuckling tale. Having outwitted a band of pirates to obtain a map disclosing the whereabouts of Captain Flint's treasure, Young Jim sets sail for Treasure Island. But the crew of the Hispaniola are not what they seem. Revealing themselves as another gang of cut throats, led by the villainous Long John Silver, they are hell-bent on seizing both the ship and the treasure. Will they succeed? The struggle of Young Jim and his friends as they do battle on the high seas is thrillingly played out in this full-bodied production starring Jack Shepherd, Iain Cuthbertson, Buster Merryfield and James McPherson as young Jim Hawkins.

Treasure Island Press Reviews

- It is a breathless journey and the closest thing to a real pirate adventure without an eye patch and a time machine... It is a unique work of genius. --Eoin Colfer, author of Artemis Fowl - Who can think of a pirate without conjuring up the image of Long John Silver? --Daily Mail

About Robert Louis Stevenson

Robert Louis Stevenson was born in 1850. He withdrew from engineering at Edinburgh University in favor of studying law. Although he passed the bar and became an advocate in 1875, he knew that his true work was as a writer. Between 1876 and his death in 1894, Stevenson wrote prolifically. His published essays, short stories, fiction, travel books, plays, letters, and poetry number in dozens. The most famous of his works include Travels With A Donkey in the Cevennes, New Arabian Nights, The Strange Case of Doctor Jekyll and Mr Hyde, Thrawn Janet, and Kidnapped.
