BBC KS2 Music: Treasure Island

The story

Jim Hawkins - aged 12 - lives and works at the Admiral Benbow Inn on the Bristol Channel. One day an old sailor - Billy Bones - arrives looking for lodgings and before long other sailors arrive too, looking for him.

It turns out that Billy Bones has a map, the key to finding a lost treasure hoard in the Caribbean.

For Jim it is the start of the great adventure: he and his friends charter the Hispaniola and sail. But their crew includes a number of pirates including Long John Silver and soon he has control of the ship...
