Douglas Kelly stars as ‘Dick Barton – Special Agent’ in another thrilling adventure for radio’s greatest hero
Heralded by an instantly memorable signature tune, the adventures of special agent Dick Barton and his friends, Jock and Snowey, originally ran on the BBC Light Programme between 1946 and 1951. Set in an exciting world of criminal masterminds, espionage and adventure, the series was essential listening for an entire generation.
Sadly very few of the BBC’s original recordings still survive. However, in 1949 a number of early Barton tales were re-recorded for transmission overseas. Starring Douglas Kelly, these re-stagings found new audiences in Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.
Over 300 of these ‘international’ recordings were rediscovered in the National Film and Sound Archive of Australia in 2009 and allow listeners finally to relive the escapades of the great Dick Barton.When a consignment of gold is stolen, Dick and his friends are dispatched deep into the foothills of Tibet to recover it. What awaits them in the lair of Foo-dow, the brigand? Will they recover the missing bullion? Find out in this next exciting instalment of ‘Dick Barton – Special Agent!’
