(Episode 1)
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
Characters include
A Young Man
Prince Florizel of Bohemia
Colonel Geraldine, his friend
Mr. Malthus
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.

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.
