1. Wonderful! This has always been one of my favourite plays but I’d no idea it had been recorded for radio. Great to hear it for the first time. Also interesting to hear them say ‘robot’ (as ‘rubbut’)- it was a new word and no one had really decided how it should sound.

    • As far as I know this is the only surviving adaptation. The BBC did it a couple of times, but no recordings exist.

      Yes, rubbut – not to be confused with ‘row butt’ which is a nautical term the Captain may be familiar with. In a Piratical sense that is.
