Ahoy, matey! After a bit of a break, Hardcover’s back from our sea-faring adventures! This week’s episode: a well-known pirate adventure novel, goes by the name of Treasure Island, arr!

 

Eddie Izzard as Long John Silver in a 2012 adaptation of Treasure Island (actually produced by Sky 1, not the BBC as was said in the episode. Sorry, friends!). Definitely worth a view!

Oak Island on the east coast of Canada is the site of Captain Kidd’s legendary treasure. There is a map, but what it leads to exactly is still being discovered.
