Description: This is the compelling story about a group of very ordinary small boys marooned on a coral island. At first it seems as though it is all going to be great fun; but the fun before long becomes furious and life on the island turns into a nightmare of panic and death.

The Lady In The Van


Category: Comedy Spoken
Description: Maggie Smith stars in this BBC radio adaptation of Alan Bennett's highly acclaimed autobiographical stage play. An eccentric old lady moves into a quiet street in Camden Town. There she remains, installed in her van in glorious self-sufficiency, until the council instructs her to move on. Then a kind home-owner invites her to move her van into his garden - where she stays for the next fifteen years. This is the fascinating story of the genteel vagrant who found a unique place in Alan Bennett's life and writing. But the drama is as much about the author himself as Miss Shepherd. Why did Alan Bennett let her commandeer his driveway? Was he acting out of kindness, weakness, or hidden guilt over not spending enough time with his own mother? Did he always subconsciously plan to exploit Miss Shepherd for literary profit? Thought-provoking and moving, The Lady in the Van tackles profound questions about social responsibility, homelessness and mental illness with a lightness of touch characteristic of Bennett the master storyteller. With a full cast including Adrian Scarborough, Marcia Warren and Alan Bennett, this bitter-sweet comic tale stars Maggie Smith as Miss Shepherd. Now a major BBC feature film, starring Maggie Smith and Alex Jennings.

D-day: The Road To Normandy


Category: Comedy Spoken
Description: First-hand accounts by those who planned and took part in the Normandy landings, and eyewitness reports from BBC correspondents travelling with the troops on 6 June 1944. In 1940, after the evacuation of the British army from Dunkirk, Winston Churchill vowed that Allied Forces would return to cleanse Europe of the Nazi Pestilence. The logistics of Operation Overlord were daunting, but an inspired campaign of deception successfully diverted Hitler's attention away from the Normandy beaches until it was too late. Rommel had privately declared the battle must won in the first twenty-four hours or it would be the beginning of the end for Germany. By midnight on D- Day, a beachhead had been established. The Allies were back in Europe, and Rommel was right. The reminiscences of civilians, military strategists, German officers and Allied servicemen powerfully evoke the events of seventy years ago. The courage of the troops is evident, yet their individual stories reveal their deepest fears. Some were haunted by the carnage, others exhilarated by the action, but, in the words of one officer, obviously there were tragic moments, frightening moments too, but on the whole it had to be done and we did it.

Stevenson: Jekyll And Hyde (unabridged)


Category: Comedy Spoken
Description: The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde is the ultimate study of man's psyche and the terrifying realms of human impulse. A nineteenth-century classic, it is suspenseful storytelling at its best, and perfectly realised in this unabridged recording. Dr Jekyll's creation of a dangerous alter ego, with the intention of freeing himself from his own conscience, continues to compel readers to this day. As our narrator, Mr Utterson, seeks the truth about the mysterious Hyde, Jekyll's fervent desire to purge his soul of evil and his inability to control his counterpart comes to an unforgettable climax. Haunting and thrilling, this atmospheric fable is one of the world's greatest short stories. It is twinned here with Markheim, an earlier tale of second-selves, conscience and the struggle between good and evil.

Great Britains Great War


Category: Comedy Spoken
Description: This is the unabridged audiobook edition of Great Britain's Great War, Jeremy Paxman's magnificent history of the First World War that tells the entire story of the war in one gripping narrative from the point of view of the British people. Read by the actor Roy Mc Millan. We may think we know about it, but what was life really like for the British people during the First World War? The well-known images - the pointing finger of Lord Kitchener; a Tommy buried in the mud of the Western Front; the memorial poppies of remembrance day - all reinforce the idea that it was a pointless waste of life. So why did the British fight it so willingly and how did the country endure it for so long? Using a wealth of first-hand source material, Jeremy Paxman brings vividly to life the day-to-day experience of the British over the entire course of the war, from politicians, newspapermen, campaigners and Generals, to Tommies, factory workers, nurses, wives and children, capturing the whole mood and morale of the nation. It reveals that life and identity in Britain were often dramatically different from our own, and show how both were utterly transformed - not always for the worst - by the enormous upheaval of the war. Rich with personalities, surprises and ironies, this lively narrative history paints a picture of courage and confusion, doubts and dilemmas, and is written with Jeremy Paxman's characteristic flair for storytelling, wry humour and pithy observation. Praise for Empire: Paxman is witty, incisive, acerbic and opinionated... In short, he carries the whole thing off with panache bordering on effrontery. ( Sunday Times). He writes with wit and penetration, and every page can be read with relaxed pleasure'. ( Spectator). Jeremy Paxman is a renowned broadcaster, award-winning journalist and the bestselling author of seven works of non-fiction, including The English, The Political Animal and Empire.
