The little prince
Part of the BBC Children's Classics series
Robert Powell stars as the Aviator with Garrett Moore as the Little Prince and Bernard Cribbins as the King in this BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of Antoine de Saint-Exupery's popular fable.
This poignant dramatisation of the French classic was translated and dramatised by Bonnie Greer.
When he crashes in the Sahara Desert, the Aviator believes he is all alone - until he meets an unusual space traveller: a boy with golden hair who calls himself The Little Prince.
As the Aviator repairs his plane, the Little Prince tells him fantastical tales about his amazing interplanetary journey.
On his home planet, asteroid B-612, he fell in love with a beautiful rose, but left her to explore the universe.
In the course of his travels, he has met people including a King, a drunkard and a lamplighter, as well as a snake and a wise fox - but now he must return home and be reunited with his rose...
A classic story about love, friendship and loss, The Little Prince is one of the most read books in the world.
The wonder and excitement of much-loved children's classics lives on in BBC Radio's acclaimed full-cast dramatisations, complete with evocative music and sound effects.
