From 1939 to 1946, Americans gathered around their radios to listen to The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, featuring Basil Rathbone as the high-strung crime solver and Nigel Bruce as his phlegmatic assistant, Dr. Watson.

The latest audio technology has been employed to bring the best audio quality and fidelity to the original performances, which feature nostalgic wartime announcements, original commercials and vintage radio narrations.

As a true fan of the Sherlock Holmes movies, I found Murder By Moonlight and Other Mysteries a wonderful collection to my radio programs. The stories are great and introduce a new Sherlock Holmes in Tom Conway. A delight to listen to. I hope that Audible can get a hold of many more of the Basil Rathbone & Nigel Bruce, Sherlock Holmes Radio Programs.
This is farcical more about what the Americans had to put up with during the Second World War or repetitive advertising, ghastly! Very little to do with Sherlock or drama,
