: THE SUICIDE CLUB

An Episode from the New
Arabian Nights by Robert Louis Stevenson
Adapted for broadcasting by Ursula Branston-1
The Story of the Young Man with the Cream Tarts in which we make the acquaintance of the most romantic Prince in Europe, Florizel of Bohemia ; his Master of the Horse, Colonel Geraldine, and the sinister
President of the Suicide Club
Those taking part
Felix Aylmer
Robert Newton
J. B. Rowe
Bruce Winston Hubert Gregg
J. Fisher White
Brember Wills and Adrian Thomas
Production by William MacLurg
(Empire Programme)
The best introduction to the stories which have been dramatised under the title of ' The Suicide Club ' is to speak of their author-Robert Louis Stevenson. Above all else, he was a romantic ; and he carried this into every phase of his existence, from the days of boyhood in Edinburgh to his death, still only at middle-age, in the South Seas. It was perhaps the triumph of his essential romanticism that he achieved such immense popularity in the backwash of the Victorian era.
In creating the characters of Prince Florizel of Bohemia and the President of the Suicide Club, Stevenson showed himself the ' exhilarating stylist ', who found in his own life the most fantastic adventure of all.
The second episode will be broadcast on Friday afternoon.

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

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
