An American Gentleman
by G. B. Stern.
In 1881, Robert Louis Stevenson wrote "Treasure Island" which he dedicated to his stepson, Lloyd Osbourne, in the following words - "an American gentleman in accordance with whose classical taste the following narrative has been designed..."
Robert Louis Stevenson spent the last years of his life in Samoa and this is the starting point for the story. The Samoans' name for Stevenson was 'Tusitala' - 'The Storyteller'. The action takes place in Samoa, Braemar, Scotland, and Davos, in Switzerland.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome
