    5 stars due to content, but some content is missing...what content? The interview with Elijah Wood is nowhere to be found, at least not in the correct order. Just thought I'd let ya know...

    "Sixty Hours of great radio Plays"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story


    Allow for variable radio quality from the 30's and 40's.

    Naturally there are some plays I am enjoying more than others. however this was a great adventure for radio of it's day.
    Some are adaptations from movies of the day with the actors from the movies. Some have Orson Wells playing one or many roles. Some are adaptations created especially for the radio.
    Classics like 'War of the Worlds' and 'The 39 Steps' are here.

    A list of the plays and length would be a good addition (as a pdf). As it is, it is pot luck.

    Even the adverts for soap and soup are interesting. To their credit they did sponsor these creative radio plays.

  • "New "Old Time" Radio"

    3 of 3 helpful votes

    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.

Helped - and hampered - by his diligent Permanent Secretary Sir Humphrey Appleby (Nigel Hawthorne) and his Principle Private Secretary Bernard Woolley (Derek Fowlds), Hacker and his department became synonymous with government bureaucracy and administrative double dealing.
