The Story of the Young Man with the Cream Tarts
An Episode from ' The New Arabian Nights ' by Robert Louis Stevenson , adapted for broadcasting by Ursula Branstonand produced by Cyril Wood
A Young Man
Prince Florizel of Bohemia
Colonel Geraldine, his friend
The President and other members of the Suicide Club
London, at the turn of last century
This is not the first time that the work of Robert Louis Stevenson has been adapted for a play broadcast from West Region, and listeners will probably remember the strong drama and thrills contained in Admiral Guinea and Treasure Island. The Suicide Club, to be presented this evening, has an unusually grim theme, but the fact that it is set at the end of the last century gives it a touch of period decoration.
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.
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.
