Four chilling episodes from the famous 1940s BBC radio series, introduced by Valentine Dyall, AKA The Man in Black.
These are the four sole surviving episodes from the BBC archive: The Pit and the Pendulum by Edgar Allan Poe (18/9/1943); The Speaking Clock by John Dickson Carr (13/4/1944); The Clock Strikes Eight by John Dickson Carr(18/5/1944); And The Deep Shuddered by Monckton Hoffe (20/11/1945).
Amongst the cast are Marjorie Westbury, Marius Goring and Gladys Spencer.
This was an excellent series. I loved listening to it. It was exciting waiting to hear the next story the following week. Nice to know a new generation can enjoy these remaining stories.

These short performances are amazing. My interest was kindled by previous audible reviews as I love black and white British films of this era. It's a good listen for night time with a candle by your bed, but very very spooky so I waited till I wasn't alone in the house.... It's such a shame the rest of the series were lost and only 4 remain. Wish they were found in some lofty attic....yikes.!
