Diderot's Supplement au ' Voyage' de Bougainville newly translated by Rayner Heppenstall
Produced by Rayner Heppenstall
(The recorded broadcast of Feb. 27)
Louis Antoine de Bougainville 's account of his visit to Tahiti (of which no English translation has been in print for nearly two centuries) came out in 1771. This programme, which quotes from Bougainville, is based principally upon the set of dialogues written in the following year by the encyclopaedist and philosopher Denis Diderot in which he claimed to refer to material unpublished by Bougainville.
