AUDIO: David Tennant Stars In Terror In The South Seas: The Ebb Tide


David Tennant is the narrator for a new radio dramatisation of The Ebb Tide which aired on BBC Radio 4 on Sunday afternoon. The production is the second in the two-part miniseries Terror In The South Seas, part of  Radio 4's short season celebrating the classic Scottish writer.


Terror In The South Seas: The Ebb Tide
Three destitute men steal a schooner. They drink the cargo of champagne and try to steal a treasure trove of pearls from a local slave-owning trader. Starring Stanley Townsend and Rupert Evans with narration by David Tennant.


At the height of his powers, Stevenson tackled the most pressing theme on the islands - the vicious effects of colonialism including slavery, racism, sexual exploitation and the conflict between traditional and modern values. The subjects are as vivid today as in 1894 and these compelling and violent stories feature some of the most driven, dangerous and obsessive characters in fiction. Joseph Conrad drew on these novellas for Heart of Darkness.
