  • "The best thing I have ever heard on..."

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    This was the deserved winner of the best radio audio drama in 2012 and it is definitely the best radio drama I have ever heard. Katie Hims is an amazing writer and Rosie Cavaliero voices this perfectly. It is an incredibly moving listen that made me laugh and cry and long for more drama of this quality.

    BBC Radio 4's bittersweet trilogy set in 1941, 1979 and 2011. This history of relatives lost and found was originally broadcast on 3, 10 and 17 May 2011 in the 'Afternoon Play' slot. The first play, 'The Wrong Label', is set in London in 1941. Alice knows that to stop your children from being evacuated is tantamount to siding with Hitler. In 'The Year My Mother Went Missing', it's 1979, and not the first time that Ruthie's mother Queenie has gone missing - but usually she leaves a note.

    Story

    Lee Ross deservedly won an award for his part as David in the recent radio drama awards and this drama is worth listening to for his perfornance alone. Katie Hims is an incredibly talented writer and although this is not as good as the amazing 'Lost Property' it is still a gripping, moving listen.

    Dave has a pretty good life: his company is thriving, he's got a lovely wife, a big house, kids at private schools. But then he gets a bit careless and things start to go wrong. Katie Hims is well-known to Radio Four listeners for her many original dramas and adaptations on that network. Most recently she dramatised some of the Martin Beck novels (with more to come); and she won an Audio Drama Award in 2012 for her play Lost Property - A Visit from the Queen, to name but two of her many successes. This is Katie's first Drama On 3. Directed by Mary Peate.

    Story

    Katie Hims award winning 'Lost Property' is my all time favourite radio drama so I was very keen to listen to these dramatised stories. They are thoughtful, moving, very real, well acted inter-linked dramas. I felt really drawn into the lives of the characters and would highly recommend a listen

Helped - and hampered - by his diligent Permanent Secretary Sir Humphrey Appleby (Nigel Hawthorne) and his Principle Private Secretary Bernard Woolley (Derek Fowlds), Hacker and his department became synonymous with government bureaucracy and administrative double dealing.

By day he made thousands of dollars a minute. By night he spent it as fast as he could, on drugs, sex, and international globe-trotting.

    Tony Hancock stars with Sid James and Kenneth Williams in the legendary BBC Radio comedy series. Created by Ray Galton and Alan Simpson in 1954, Hancock's Half Hour was the radio vehicle that made Tony Hancock a household name. Each week listeners would be admitted to the sometimes fantastical, sometimes mundane life of "the lad 'imself". Aided and abetted by Sid James, Andrée Melly, Bill Kerr, and Kenneth Williams, Hancock would enter into the spirit of each episode with characteristic dolefulness.

Elsewhere, Cynthia hopes Tom and Ray can settle her brothers' tug-of-war over a vintage Camaro, but it's more likely they'll just add a Magliozzi family feud to the mix. Also, Bill's steering wheel is re-enacting "Ghostbusters" by oozing an odd substance; Marsha's wondering if adding oil to her coolant is the end of the world, or at least the end of her Previa; and on Stump the Chumps, we find out if marriage cured Ellen's fiance of his high-performance add-on addiction.
