Classic BBC radio mystery drama

Led by first rate character actors Leslie French and Willie Rushton, these five full cast dramatisations are excellent recreations of G K Chesterton's wonderful mystery tales. It is welcome to hear faithful versions of these stories as opposed to the "freely adapted" recent TV adaptations which bear little resemblance to the classis original stories. Highly recommended for all fans of classic crime and mystery.

Good dramatisations marred by some technical issues

Five good adaptations of Father Brown stories, marred only by some technical issues in places.

Great to hear the original stories un-BBC- adulter

only one problem the recording although remastered are still a tad difficult to hear. But what are we to expect. Going to buy a couple more ASAP.
