    Jane Rogers (How the tides turned, Review, 10 December) doesn’t say a prior radio adjustment of Robert Louis Stevenson’s The Beach of Falesa by Dylan Thomas, nor a film alternative purchased by Richard Burton, who needed to give Elizabeth Taylor a role as the youthful Polynesian lady, Uma. The film was never ensured if Dylan Thomas’ adjustment was ever communicate. It’s great to see Stevenson’s Pacific stories getting some consideration. Some went past the “new authenticity” that Rogers portrays and looked for an indigenous readership. The Bottle Imp, for instance, the framework of which Stevenson knew as a mid nineteenth century drama, however it was a story of Germanic society source, was converted into Samoan and distributed in a neighborhood minister magazine. It would have discovered its way into most Samoan homes.2
