RADIO: David Tennant Introduces Robert Louis Stevenson's Kidnapped On BBC Radio 4 Today

David Tennant provides a short introduction to the first episode of a two part radio adaptation of the classic adventure novel, Kidnapped by Robert Louis Stevenson. Said to be Stevenson's personal favourite among his own stories, Kidnapped is one of several dramatisations featured in BBC Radio 4's short season paying tribute to the Scottish writer which can be heard over the next few weeks.

David Tennant introduces Robert Louis Stevenson’s gripping adventure story, as dramatised by Chris Dolan.
In 1751, in the aftermath of the Jacobite rebellions, young David Balfour, a staunch supporter of George II, is newly orphaned and goes in search of his father’s family near Edinburgh. When he is press-ganged on board a ship bound for the slave plantations of America, he forges an unlikely alliance with the charismatic Highlander, Alan Breck.
Starring Owen Whitelaw as Balfour and Michael Nardone as Breck.

Kidnapped has been adapted for radio from the original novel by Robert Louis Stevenson and has been produced and directed by Bruce Young. Part 2 follows on Sunday 27th November.
