Those taking part

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.
