In 1972, as part of the BBC's Golden Jubilee celebrations, the team came together once more to re-record the very first adventure. The episodes were not stored in the BBC Archives but, thanks to private tapes, these 'lost' recordings can be heard once more. And here they are, in this fast-moving story about a stolen secret weapon, complete with dark caves, deadly spiders, lifts with no floors and - most intriguingly - a tall and mysterious man in a black Homburg.

Set in an exciting world of criminal masterminds, espionage and adventure, the adventures of special agent Dick Barton and his friends Jock and Snowey were essential listening for an entire generation. Originally running on the BBC Light Programme between 1946 and 1951, few of the BBC's original recordings still survive. However, in 1949 a number of early Barton tales were rerecorded for transmission overseas starring Douglas Kelly.
