    Story

    Thanks to Jim French for keeping radio drama alive. The Harry Nile series was broadcast on a local radio station for many years and I was a regular listener. When the show disappeared from radio, I found the Harry Nile web site and ordered the shows on CD. I was delighted to find the series available on Audible.

    Harry Nile is a former police officer who now works as a private detective. He is aided by Murphy, a former librarian who has become his assistant. These stories take place before the Internet age, when a librarian had the know how to find information - it just took longer.

    Harry Nile is smart and ethical. Once in awhile he finds a client who can pay him well. Often, however, his clients are people of modest means who have big problems. Harry has a hard time saying no to these folks.

    These stories are full in interesting historical details about Seattle (where the stories take place). They also remind the listener of how different things were in the early 50's. For instance. in one story Harry flies from Miami to Seattle. There is one flight a week and the trip takes 14 hours!

    Each story is about 20 minutes long. The plots are interesting and the production is excellent.

    If you enjoy listening to the "old time" radio dramas, I believe you will enjoy Harry Nile.

    Story

    A few years ago, the Harry Nile radio drama series was broadcast on a local radio station. I was very disappointed when that station stopped broadcasing the show. I was delighted when I found the series available on CD, and now on Kindle.

    This is a modern version of the type of radio drama that was broadcast in the days before television became popular. I listened to classic radio shows as a child and still enjoy them today.

    Each show is about 20 minutes long. The plots are intriguing and the characters likable.

But audiences wanted more, and so began 26 years of episodes. Here are 24 dramas covering Harry Niles' cases from May 1956 to Summer 1958. These are full-cast audio dramatizations.

    Story

    This is a BBC radio show from the 1960's. This series ran for over 30 years on the BBC.

    If you have listened to and enjoyed other Paul Temple dramas, you will probably enjoy this one. It doesn't stray from the usual format. This is a vintage radio show. It is not even close to being "cutting edge."

    I am old enough to remember when dramas were broadcast on the radio. There are times when I want a change from current TV, with it's edgy, often violent dramas. Those are the times when I listen to, and enjoy, Paul Temple.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If my friend remembers and enjoyed old radio drama, this would be the show for him. When I was a kid in the 1950s, my father let me listen to records of old radio drama, and when I scanned the dial of the old tube radio late at night, sometimes I could find radio shows like this one.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    These were nice short stories fitting of the hard boiled detective I enjoy.


    Which character – as performed by Jim French and Phil Harper – was your favorite?

    Harry Nile, our hero is my favorite of course.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The whole flavor of dramatic radio theator is wonderful for me.

  • "Top performance of a classic story"

    4 of 4 helpful votes

    This story has some unique features among Agatha Christie's books. There's no second murder to help narrow down the suspects, and Poirot must solve the crime in a matter of hours. Even if you've read the story before, this dramatisation is still worth listening to. The sound effects may not be quite movie standard, but they're convincing none the less. The acting is good, and the script writer left the original story alone. And for those of us who can't see, we can follow the story as well as our sighted friends staring at the radio. A pleasant two hours listening.

    From 1938 to 1969 crime novelist and detective Paul Temple, together with his Fleet Street journalist wife Steve, solved case after case in one of BBC radio's most popular serials. They inhabited a sophisticated world of chilled cocktails and fast cars, where the women were chic and the men wore cravats, a world where Sir Graham Forbes, of Scotland Yard, usually needed Paul's help with his latest tricky case.

    Dragnet was perhaps the most famous and influential police procedural drama in media history. The series gave millions of audience members a feel for the boredom and drudgery, as well as the danger and heroism, of real-life police work.

    Actor and producer Jack Webb's aims in Dragnet were for realism and unpretentious acting. He achieved both goals, and Dragnet remains a key influence on subsequent police dramas in many media.

    Philip Marlowe is a fictional private eye created by Raymond Chandler. Marlowe first appeared, under that name, in The Big Sleep, published in 1939. The Adventures of Philip Marlowe was a radio series featuring the Marlowe character. It first aired 17 June 1947 on NBC radio and moved to CBS radio a few months later. By 1949, it had the largest audience in radio. The CBS version ran for 114 episodes. While many fans of classic hard-boiled detective stories are familiar with Chandler's novels and short stories, few have heard these radio shows.
