Dr. Peter Blood is arrested and sentenced to hang for treating a wounded rebel. Instead of death, he is sent to Barbados as a slave. When the Spanish attack the port city of Bridgetown, he and his fellow slaves capture the Spanish ship and set out to sea, where he becomes the notorious pirate, Captain Blood. With battles on sea and on land, daring escapes, sword duels to the death, a touch of romance, and a magnificent score by Jeffrey Gage, Captain Blood is a swashbuckling adventure on a very grand scale!

had to pik just one out but I suppose the ending was the best
The experiance of it being dramatized.
the ending had a grown man in tears
I wish there where more dramatized such as this
I grew up on Golden Age Radio, and while I love to read, I typically consume more books via audio thanks to a job that lets me listen while I work. As an aspiring writer, I try to read a great deal of non-fiction in addition to a variety of fictional genres. I especially love history, historical fiction, science fiction, fantasy, and old-style gothic horror.
I'm developing a healthy respect for the Colonial Radio Theatre players. Rafael Sabatini's works are already amongst my favorites just because they're swashbuckling fun, and I'm a sucker for that. I'm also a sucker for a quality full-cast radio drama, and these actors bring the melodrama up to full. It actually feels a lot like they stripped the audio track from an Errol Flynn movie. I'd love to hear this group do a version of Scaramouche.
CRT's production of Captain Blood is outstanding! I'm getting spoiled by this radio company's attention to detail and a willingness to dramatize the entire story. I've never encountered this before in a commercial product.
The sea engagements, the detail of history, and CRT's excellent performances. I felt like one of Peter Blood's crew.
Jeremy Pitt, Captain Blood's conscience. Delicate yet strong like a foil. Not like a cutlass.
Cast off for Port Royal! CRT's production and Warner Brothers have already sheared away a main cable for quality, so I think both are safe.
Jerry and CRT keep them coming!
