BBC Thursday – 6th of April

BBC_Radio_logoHave you missed BBC radio? Have you discovered any good dramas while I was gone?

I haven’t done much listening during that time so I might’ve missed a few things, but there are always new stories waiting :).

1. Journey to the Centre of the Earth Jules Verne’s novel adapted by Moya O’Shea

Renowned professor, Otto Lidenbrock, discovers a mysterious, runic cryptogram in a rare manuscript he has bought. It is his nephew, Axel, who accidentally cracks the message which is by a sixteenth century alchemist who claims to have found a pathway to the centre of the earth! “Descend, bold traveller into the crater of the Jokul of Snæfell, which the shadow of Scartaris touches before the kalends of July and you will attain the centre of the earth.”

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. Continue reading “BBC Thursday – 2nd of February”

BBC Thursday 5th of January

BBC_Radio_logoNew year, new BBC dramatizations to listen to, or so it seems :P.

Today’s list will be a bit long, but I just can’t skip any of these. There will be some mystery, some classic, a bit of fairy dust and some curious lands.

Hear the evidence gathered clue by clue – as Sherlock Holmes enthusiast, Nick Utechin investigates how the Baker Street sleuth has been portrayed on radio across the decades.
