  • The Lady in the Van (Dramatised)

    • UNABRIDGED (1 hr and 32 mins)
    • By Alan Bennett
    • Narrated By Maggie Smith, Adrian Scarborough

    In the 1970s, an eccentric old lady called Miss Shepherd lives in an old caravan opposite Bennett's house in Camden. That is until new parking regulations come into force - and he suggests moving the van onto his driveway...

    PETER says: "Hillarious"

    This is a gem. The language is brilliant with the true British understated comedy. Maggie Smith is excellent but Adrian Scarborough steals the show with his superb caricature

    • UNABRIDGED (4 hrs and 16 mins)
    • By Todd Burpo, Lynn Vincent
    • Narrated By Dean Gallagher

    When Colton Burpo made it through an emergency appendectomy, his family was overjoyed at his miraculous survival. What they weren’t expecting, though, was the story that emerged in the months that followed—a story as beautiful as it was extraordinary, detailing their little boy’s trip to heaven and back.

  • The Murder of Roger Ackroyd (Dramatised)

    • ORIGINAL (1 hr and 28 mins)
    • By Agatha Christie
    • Narrated By John Moffatt

    A BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation starring John Moffatt as Hercule Poirot. Mrs Farrars is found dead of an apparent overdose one year after the death of her husband. The villagers of King's Abbot are suspicious. The rumour is that she poisoned her husband and was in love with Roger Ackroyd. When he is found murdered the following day, there is little to go on. Luckily one of the newest residents who has retired to this normally quiet village is none other than Monsieur Hercule Poirot.

    PETER says: "A good way to wile away time"
    "A good way to wile away time"

    A typical Agatha Christie but short and well narrated. Story is a bit typical with the famouse Agatha Christie confrontation at the end

  • The First Casualty

    • ABRIDGED (3 hrs and 5 mins)
    • By Ben Elton
    • Narrated By Jack Davenport

    Flanders, June 1917: a British officer and celebrated poet is shot dead, killed not by German fire, but while recuperating from shell shock well behind the lines. A young English soldier is arrested and, although he protests his innocence, charged with his murder. Douglas Kingsley is a conscientious objector, previously a detective with the London police, now imprisoned for his beliefs. He is released, and sent to France in order to secure a conviction.

    PETER says: "clever"

    A clever story well told with a slight twist. Hold syour interest. Well narrated with some interesting characters. It is subtly done considering the setting of the story

  • The Abolition of Man & The Great Divorce

    • UNABRIDGED (4 hrs and 27 mins)
    • By C.S. Lewis
    • Narrated By Simon Vance
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Have we been taught to discount the veracity and deeper meaning of our emotional resonance with the world around us? In The Abolition of Man, C.S. Lewis looks at the curriculum of the English "prep school" and begins to wonder if this subliminal teaching has indeed produced a generation who discount such a nature.

    Joseph says: "Two great (but quite different) gems from CSL"
    "CS Lewis at his best"

    The Great Divorce is one of the simpler of Lewis' collection. Well read and easy to listen to. There are some brilliant concepts of heaven and hell. The abolition of man is quite a work but has dated a bit and is Lewis at his most academic. Overall well worth a listen
