Riassunto: The Golden Age of Radio Series is a collection of audio titles assembled by theme. Each topic in the series features high-quality audio programs compiled together at one incredibly low price.
For the First time in half a century, Sherlock Holmes returns to radio in a new series of broadcasts! Here is a collection of newly-conceived tales of the world's First consulting detective, as told by his friend and associate, Dr. John Watson, portrayed by actor Lawrence Albert. Sherlock Holmes Radio Mysteries is produced under authority of the estate of Dame Jean Conan Doyle, granddaughter of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Each episode is fully dramatized, with a professional cast of actors, realistic sound effects, and a special suite of music that was commissioned for this radio series. But, most importantly, the creator of the programs, Jim French, researched and took special care to abide by the Doyle canon: you will hear Holmes, played by John Gilbert, in all his changeable moodiness, and Dr. Watson as his alert and outspoken assistant the way Sir Arthur wrote them. In a review of radio dramatic programs worldwide, the BBC's Channel 4 included the very broadcasts heard in this album as among the best radio dramas in the English language. Whether you are a longtime fan of the denizens of Baker Street, or a newcomer to the genre, Sherlock Holmes Radio Mysteries is an entertaining audio collection based on this timeless and most loved private detective duo.
Jim French, who produced the dramas in this collection, has spent 50 years on the air. He writes and produces an on-going stream of award-winning radio mysteries, now syndicated worldwide as Imagination Theatre.
