  • "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.

    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

    Look, I didn't want to be a half-blood. I never asked to be the son of a Greek God. I was just a normal kid, going to school, playing basketball, skateboarding. The usual. Until I accidentally vaporized my maths teacher. That's when things started really going wrong. Now I spend my time fighting with swords, battling monsters with my friends, and generally trying to stay alive. This is the one where Zeus, God of the Sky, thinks I've stolen his lightning bolt - and making Zeus angry is a very bad idea.

    When Lister got drunk, he really got drunk! After celebrating his birthday with a Monopoly-board pub crawl around London, he came to in a burger bar on one of Saturns moons, wearing a lady's pink crimplene hat and a pair of yellow fishing waders, with no money and a passport in the name of "Emily Berkenstein". Joining the Space Corps seemed a good idea.

    This week on Car Talk, do two people who don't know what they're talking about know more or less than one person who doesn't know what he's talking about? Andy thinks Tom and Ray's recent "pas-de-deux of breath-taking speculation" on electric brakes may have answered this question definitively. Elsewhere, Evan's son stuffed a golf ball into her car's exhaust, and she worried it may land a hole-in-one right in the middle of her engine; Christine can't evict a colony of ants living in her car's headliner; and Todd's noisy truck gives Tom a chance to re-live his Army days with the long-suffering Sgt. McNeeley.
