BBC Thursday – 2nd of February


Hello, my dead Radio addicts! I know today’s post comes out a bit late, but I wanted to prepare this little graphic you can see here and surprisingly I couldn’t do that at work :P. Maybe I should change switch departments after all, but it looks like I have waaaay too little experience with actual DTP work. Let’s face it, my skills are totally basic and limited to Photoshop ;).

Anyway, on today’s playlist, I’ve got for you two crime/mystery dramatizations – one that I’ve already listened to and one that… well, I haven’t listened to this story, but there were others by this rather interesting author.

1. Monk’s Hood (Chronicles of Brother Cadfael #3) by Ellis Peters

The year is 1138, and Brother Cadfael, herbalist of Shrewsbury Abbey, is asked to supply a healing potion for a sick monk – but monk’s hood oil can kill as well as cure….

At a nightclub, Belgian sleuth, Hercule Poirot and Captain Hastings meet the elegant Lady Edgware who has a surprising personal request…

And here’s another adaptation of Agatha Christie’s novel! Well, I admit I prefer Miss Marple stories, but Poirot is also a fascinating character and I can’t resist listening to these adaptations.

Happy listening!

  1. Yesterday afternoon, I found myself listening to a ‘Saint’ story by Leslie Charteris on Radio 4 Extra, and I’ve also listened to four episodes of the third ‘Journey Into Space’ adventure on the BBC iplayer. What is it about radio that’s so attractive?
    BTW – have read both above serials as novels.
