    The South…but not as we know it… On the threshold of infinity, a world awaits the inevitable moment of annihilation – fearing the terrible wild colors that bleed through the shredded fabric of reality. The river flows across the dimensions – lawless, unstable waterways that seep into chaos and violent uncertainty.

    John says: "narrator totally unsuited to the material"

    I love Michael Moorcok - but the narration for this was just all wrong wrong wrong - I gave up

    Flight of the Old Dog is the runaway best seller that launched the phenomenal career of Dale Brown. It is the riveting story of America's military superiority being surpassed as our greatest enemy masters space-to-Earth weapons technology - neutralizing the U.S. arsenal of nuclear missiles.

    America's only hope: The Old Dog Zero One, a battle-scarred bomber fully renovated with modern hardware - and equipped with the deadliest state-of-the-art armaments known to man...

    Two months before the outbreak of WWII, 17-year-old Geoffrey Wellum leaves school to become a fighter pilot with the RAF. Bursting with youthful energy and expectations, he makes it through basic training to become the youngest Spitfire pilot in the prestigious 92 Squadron. Thrust into combat almost immediately, Wellum finds himself flying several sorties a day, caught up in terrifying dogfights with German Me 109s.

    Warren says: "A down to earth thoroughly enjoyable listen..."

    Story

    Geoffrey Wellum - WWII fighter pilot in Spits tells it as it is .. absolutely compelling read [or listen]. The real Geoffrey Wellum lives on in Devon England - even drives the same make of car as me - a Rover 75:) If you like true accounts of the Battle of Britain and flying Spitfires you have to listen to this.

    Story

    Ignoring the story and the naff English accent that made me smile it was that bad [but I smiled in a nice way ] and the unlikeliness of the plot have to say this was captivating for the action moments - normally I just listen in the car but this got played out at home too ... so now I need a new book :( If you like naval militay action and suspense this is a MUST

    The Bedford Boys is the astonishing true story of 21 young men who were killed during the first horrifying minutes of D-Day and the friends and families they left behind in the small town of Bedford. Twenty-one sons killed - no other town in America suffered a greater loss in one day. It is an unforgettable story of triumph, courage, and tragedy based on extensive interviews with survivors and relatives as well as diaries and letters.

    Ron says: "gripping narrative of a community sacrifice"
    "excellent"
    Overall

    Takes you to the front line - the description of the D-Day landing is totally engaging and leaves you in no doubt as to the true despair and horror of that place as well as the courage and spirit of the men who fought and died there

    The acclaimed BBC Radio 4 space drama arrives in its entirety for the very first time, with a bonus introduction by creator and writer James Follett. The starship Challenger has been on a 115-year-long mission, exploring other galaxies for suitable Earth-like planets to colonise. The present crew of four were born on the ship and have never left it. But when the Challenger attempts to return to the crew's home planet, it discovers that the Earth has vanished!

    Scott says: "Excellent Radio Play"
    "very entertaining and a bit vintage"
    Overall

    Very nice story with some interesting turns - part 1 has silly noises between acts, [and its annoying] that disappear in part two. Still that was radio of the day so ... thoroughly enjoyable.
