    A classic of alienation and horror, The Birds was immortalized by Hitchcock in his celebrated film. The five other chilling stories in this collection echo a sense of dislocation and mock man's dominance over the natural world. The mountain paradise of "Monte Verità" promises immortality, but at a terrible price; a neglected wife haunts her husband in the form of an apple tree; a professional photographer steps out from behind the camera and into his subject's life.

    A BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of Daphne du Maurier's classic tale of horror. In her story, the birds become hostile after a harsh winter with little food. First the seagulls, then birds of prey, and finally even small birds all turn against mankind. The nightmarish vision appealed to Alfred Hitchcock, who turned it into the celebrated film.

    All he ever did in life was watch people, never partake in their happiness or pain. No family, no ties, no entanglements, no friends, nothing infinitely precious. But where John’s life was drearily detached, Jean’s was over-encumbered by the ties John lacked - a warring family, an ailing business, a sordid past. When they came face to face, Jean could not resist the opportunity to escape the trials of his messy existence. John, driven into the deception, faces the horror of his altar-ego’s careless cruelty as he is drawn helplessly into a web of lies - and of love.
