Atmospheric radio dramas

These radio dramas evoke Maigret's Paris. Splendid mix of voices well performed by cast of actors.

Four BBC Radio 'Maigret' plays

I like Simenon's Maigret, each story is fairly short, a police crime stories with a puzzling twist. I like the BBC adaptation of 4 books, Maigret and the Minister being the first and Maigret and Monsieur Charles being the third. Georges Simenon 'interviews' Chief Inspector Maigret and the conversation turns into action as the cast take over. A lovely clear recording with a very engaging cast. I particularly like to listen to Maurice Denham (Maigret) who starred in many British productions, he is Poirot in a BBC radio production of Agatha Christie's The Mystery of the Blue Train which I always find a pleasure to listen to.
