Edmund Dantes finds buried treasure, and plots revenge on his enemies. Stars Iain Glen, Toby Jones and Jane Lapotaire.
By Alexandre Dumas, adapted for radio by Sebastian Baczkiewicz.
At the age of nineteen, seaman Edmond Dantès has a charmed life - about to be promoted to Captain, and engaged to the beautiful Mercédès. But Marseilles in 1815 is a dangerous place, and three of Dantes' acquaintances set in train a chain of events that will lead Edmond to fourteen years of solitary confinement in the notorious Chateau D'If.
Alexandre Dumas was born in 1802. His father, the illegitimate son of a marquis, was a general in the revolutionary armies, but died when Alexandre was four years old. His most successful novels were The Count of Monte Cristo (serialised between 1844-5) and the Three Musketeers, published in 1844.
