    Considered one of China's great classical novels, Wu Ch'êng-ên's Journey to the West was translated by Arthur Waley in abridged form as Monkey in 1942 and has delighted English readers ever since. It is a riveting adventure story about a priest's quest to obtain holy Buddhist scriptures for the Tang emperor; joining him on this rollicking journey: Sandy, Pigsy, and the mischievous monkey king, Sun Wukong, whose flying cloud and magic cudgel are never far from his infamous deeds.

    Another volume of the best episodes from the classic BBC radio comedy series, which took comedy to a new level of outrageousness in the late 1960s. Kenneth Horne is the suave host, whilst around him orbit those no-holds-barred satellites Kenneth Williams, Betty Marsden, Hugh Paddick, and Bill Pertwee. Regular characters Julian and Sandy and Rambling Syd Rumpo make a number of appearances, in amongst the usual comedy collage of sketches, songs, spoof series, and news reports.

    Between 1965 and 1969 the successor to "Beyond Our Ken" ruled the airwaves. The show was scripted by Barry Took and Marty Feldman with music from the Fraser Hayes Four. Kenneth Horne was the golden-voiced straight man of the show, with the incredible comic talents of Kenneth Williams, Betty Marsden, Hugh Paddick, and Bill Pertwee taking on the guise of a score of characters in fast and funny sketches. Its zany humour will always be remembered as a high point of '60s radio.

    This scholarly audiobook looks at racism and why it still exists. Racism, in one way or another, is still existent today: even after 50-plus years of being laid to rest. With a powerful, influential person such as Martin Luther King, Jr, one would think racism were a thing of the past. This isn't true however; it still exists, and exploitation is the primary reasons as to why it still exists.
