Barbara Pym: A BBC Radio drama collection: Some Tame Gazelle, No Fond Return of Love, Crampton Hodne Audiobook

Barbara Pym: A BBC Radio drama collection: Some Tame Gazelle, No Fond Return of Love, Crampton Hodne

Dramatisations and a reading of selected novels by Barbara Pym - plus bonus material Barbara Pym is one of the 20th Century's wittiest, and most underrated, novelists. Her perceptive comedies of manners, centred around the domestic lives and loves of unassuming middle-class Englishwomen, won her many devoted readers and saw her hailed as a modern-day Jane Austen. Yet she spent 15 years out of print in the 1960s and '70s, until Philip Larkin championed her work in the Times Literary Supplement. Her seventh novel was subsequently shortlisted for the Booker Prize, and writers from Jilly Cooper to Alexander McCall Smith continue to laud her talent today. Included in this collection are the BBC Radio dramatisations of some of her most beloved books, including her debut Some Tame Gazelle; her second novel Crampton Hodnet, published posthumously in 1985; and its sequel Jane and Prudence. Alongside them are her fifth and sixth novels, A Glass of Blessings and No Fond Return of Love; and a comic spy thriller, So Very Secret. Adapted by actress and writer Elizabeth Proud, they feature stellar casts including Miriam Margolyes, Hannah Gordon, Samantha Bond, Rebecca Front, Joanna David, Penny Downie and Amanda Root. Her best-known novel, Excellent Women, about a clergyman's daughter whose life is disturbed by anthropologists and a handsome naval officer, is read by One Foot in the Grave star Annette Crosbie. It is followed by a bonus biographical drama, The Resurrection of Miss Pym, starring Penelope Wilton and Bill Wallis and telling the story of Barbara Pym's warm friendship with Philip Larkin, her years in the publishing wilderness, and her eventual triumphant rediscovery. And in the fascinating radio talk Finding a Voice, we hear from the author in her own words as she analyses her inspiration, influences, literary style and why she kept on writing 'even in the face of discouragement'.

One Foot in the Grave: The Collected BBC Radio Comedies Audiobook

One Foot in the Grave: The Collected BBC Radio Comedies

Author: David Renwick Narrator: , Annette Crosbie, Richard Wilson Release Date: May 2019

Crabby, crusty, and curmudgeonly he may be, but Victor Meldrew, played brilliantly by Richard Wilson, voices the exasperation of the once silent majority. Accompanied by his long-suffering wife Margaret (Annette Crosbie), Victor's howlingly funny battles against what he perceives as modern-day ills have turned him into one of the great comic creations of our time. This collection gathers three of the best TV episodes from the well-known BBC 1 Series and an additional four scripts that were specially adapted for radio by One Foot in the Grave creator David Renwick and fully re-recorded by the cast. The episodes are: Alive and Buried': Made redundant at 60, Victor Meldrew has plenty of time on his hands, except now he has to contend with Age Concern workers and unreliable mechanics. 'Timeless Time': It's night-time. Victor can't sleep, which means that Margaret won't be able to either. 'In Luton Airport No-one Can Hear You Scream': Victor and Margaret return from holiday to find their home has been demolished. 'The Beast in the Cage': Victor encounters road rage when he's stuck in a bank-holiday traffic jam. 'The Man in the Long Black Coat': Following the garden gnome incident, Victor Meldrew's feud with neighbour Patrick continues apace. Added to that, Victor has also bought some radioactive manure for his allotment. The Broken Reflection': Victor is acting as a neighbourhood vigilante and is not looking forward to his accident-prone brother coming to visit from New Zealand. The Trial': Although selected for jury service, Victor hasn't yet been required in court. However, he is still on call and therefore stuck at home all day. Can he survive the boredom?

Old Harry's Game: The Complete Series Seven

Author: Andy Hamilton Narrator: Andy Hamilton, Annette Crosbie, Timothy West Release Date: May 2009

Jean Paul Sartre said, ‘Hell is other people’. But, as Satan will tell you, Hell is actually a fiery, unendingly cruel domain where Oliver Reed can never quite catch the barman’s eye and Yves St Laurent is forced to wear a donkey jacket. But Hell is about to become more hellish for Satan himself (Andy Hamilton). Not only is the historian Edith Barrington (Annette Crosbie) taking for ever to write his biography, An Angel Misunderstood, but everything is thrown into confusion when a dog turns up. Animals aren’t meant to end up in Hell because they’re not evil - well, except for dolphins of course. So why is it here? After much licking, begging and slobbering - mainly from Scumspawn - Satan decides to keep the dog and ask God (Timothy West) what is going on. But God has decided to go on a gap year to find himself. And Hell receives another, even more inexplicable guest... All six episodes from the seventh series of BBC Radio 4’s Sony Award-winning comedy set in Hell. ‘One of the great comic creations of recent years’ - Sunday Telegraph. '... one of the best-written comedies around, sustained over its 12 years on the air by brilliant performances and production' - Daily Telegraph.

Author: Andy Hamilton Narrator: , Andy Hamilton, Annette Crosbie, Jimmy Mulville, Robert Duncan Release Date: November 2008

It's not easy being Satan. There are the long hours (that stretch into eternity), and Hell seems to have more admissions than it can cope with. One of the new arrivals is Edith, a historian, athlete and humanitarian. And she's trouble: she refuses to believe she's dead, she knows Thomas and she's not afraid of Satan. But will the Grand Tour, which includes the Pit of Musicians, the Lake of Fire and the Pit of Health and Safety Inspectors, finally make her realise where she's ended up? At least Satan still knows how to have his fun: he's sneaked more teeth into Cherie Blair's smile. Written by and starring Andy Hamilton (as Satan), this bestselling series co-stars Annette Crosbie as Edith, Jimmy Mulville as Thomas and Robert Duncan as Scumspawn. A fiery furnace of wicked one-liners and scorching satire, Old Harry's Game is the insider's guide to Hell. 'One of the great comic creations of recent years' - Sunday Telegraph.

Soon he has embarked on an epic quest to confront Death in order to return her to the land of the living. Helping, or more often hindering, Satan are the Professor, Scumspawn and Thomas who encounter Queen Victoria, Harpo Marx, St Peter, Death (who has a surprisingly strong Welsh accent) - and talking crocodiles. Devilishly good fun to play - that's Old Harry's Game. 'One of the great comic creations of recent years' - Sunday Telegraph. ' one of the best-written comedies around, sustained over its 12 years on the air by brilliant performances and production' - Daily Telegraph.
