William Franklyn stars as Sexton Blake, with David Gregory as his assistant, Tinker, in four original BBC Radio dramatisations from 1967. Lost from the BBC archives for over 40 years, these rediscovered episodes are presented for the very first time. 'The Eight Swords': when a woman is found dead at Paula's hair salon, Sexton Blake is called in to investigate. 'A Murder of Crows': over the past six weeks, two men have been murdered. And both shared the name George Crow. 'Double and Quit': the top-secret Department Seven recruit Sexton Blake as a special agent. 'You Must Be Joking': a friend from Blake's club dies the day after receiving a sinister limerick. Plus a special bonus episode: 'Murder on the Portsmouth Road'. In one of Britain's earliest surviving drama recordings (from 1930), Arthur Wontner stars as Sexton Blake, tracking down a killer on a stormy night. Warning: due to the archive and off-air nature of some of the source material, the sound quality may vary. Also, some of the language on this recording reflects the era in which it was first recorded. 1. Language: English. Narrator: full cast, William Franklyn, David Gregory, Heather Chasen.

Jack was eleven when the berserkers loomed out of the fog and nabbed him. 'It seems that things are stirring across the water,' the Bard had warned. 'Ships are being built, swords are being forged.' 'Is that bad?' Jack had asked, for his Saxon village had never before seen berserkers. 'Of course. People don't make ships and swords unless they intend to use them.' The year is A.D. 793. In the next months, Jack and his little sister, Lucy, are enslaved by Olaf One-Brow and his fierce young shipmate, Thorgil. With a crow named Bold Heart for mysterious company, they are swept up into an adventure-quest that follows in the spirit of The Lord of the Rings. Other threats include a willful mother Dragon, a giant spider, and a troll-boar with a surprising personality -- to say nothing of Ivar the Boneless and his wife, Queen Frith, a shape-shifting half-troll, and several eight foot tall, orange-haired, full-time trolls. But in stories by award-winner Nancy Farmer, appearances do deceive. She has never told a richer, funnier tale, nor offered more timeless encouragement to young seekers than 'Just say no to pillaging.'
