    A classic BBC Radio full-cast production of Dylan Thomas' poetic play for voices starring Richard Burton as the narrator. To begin at the beginning: it is spring, moonless night in the small town, starless and bible-black.... When Richard Burton breathed the opening words of 'Under Milk Wood' into a microphone, broadcasting history was made.

    In a sodden tent at a '70s festival, the teenage Mark Ellen had a dream. He dreamt that music was a rich meadow of possibility, a liberating leap to a sparkling future, an industry of human happiness - and he wanted to be part of it. Thus began his 50-year love affair with rock and roll. From his time at the NME and Smash Hits to Radio One, Old Grey Whistle Test, Live Aid, Q, Select, Mojo, and The Word magazines, he's been at the molten core of its evolution, and watched its key figures from a unique perspective.

    As a young man, Ed Catmull had a dream: To make the world's first computer-animated movie. He nurtured that dream first as a Ph.D. student at the University of Utah, where many computer science pioneers got their start, and then forged an early partnership with George Lucas that led, indirectly, to his founding Pixar with Steve Jobs and John Lasseter in 1986. Nine years later and against all odds, Toy Story was released, changing animation forever.

    In these six new pieces Alan Bennett retains the gripping stories, intensity of delivery, and masterly style of his original monologues. The suburban normality of the world his characters inhabit once again belies their lives of secrets, revelations, fears, crimes, and passions. They tell their stories, and in doing so reveal more than they know of the humour, passion, and sadness of their lives.

    Frederick Lazarus Light's resolve to write a greater Iliad in English than Homer composed in Greek is manifest. This translation impersonates Homeric Greek. It runs with Achilleus and like man-shattering Hector in the shock of arms is resolutely sharp. As unrelenting as sublimity, not yielding lyrically, unprosaically vindicating Homer's vision, the brightest labor has been attempted and is brought over as a consummate attempt.

    Gethsemane is a sweeping poetic narrative that is a modern day version of John Milton's Paradise Lost. Philosophically told in three acts from the point-of-view of Lucifer, the story tells of his fall from grace, how his manipulation of his heavenly brothers, The Watchers, brought about the advent of Hell, and how Mankind adopted his ominous nature in making his purgatory (Earth) secular. In the last act, irony finally confronts Lucifer when he realizes the affection he has for a particular woman, and the notion of seeking redemption by virtue of his love for her becomes the seminal moment of his existence, and that of Mankind.
