National Programme London

The story of Keawe and his wonderful bottle was written for a Polynesian audience. It is found among the Island Nights' Entertainments. The original players and audience must all easily have recognised themselves in this fairy tale of the South Seas. For to-night's Radio production of this famous short story a cosmopolitan cast has been engaged. The masterly language of Stevenson, the picturesque setting, and the subtlety of the story itself make this broadcast rich in promise of enjoyment.


Robert Louis Stevenson
