Kevin McNally stars in five brand new recordings of original Hancock's Half Hour scripts by Ray Galton and Alan Simpson.Whilst Hancock's Half Hour was an enormously popular radio sitcom in the 1950s, many of the episodes were not retained in the BBC Sound Archive and are believed to be lost. Now, five of them have been recreated by BBC Radio 4, with Kevin McNally taking the role made famous by Tony Hancock. Among the supporting cast are Simon Grenall, Kevin Eldon and Robin Sebastian.

I was dubious for a long time before downloading this - first - of the missing Hancocks.

Now, I wish I'd downloaded it sooner. Brilliant. Easy to forget this is not the original cast.

If you've got Hhh-hancock's Half Hour 1 - 6, then 'Missing' 1 - 3 is ESSENTIAL!

Great fun.

The biggest lie in history is about to be shattered. UFOs are real. In late June of 1947, three extraterrestrial craft were downed outside Roswell Air Force Base. Many more followed, revealing dozens of ET species and a Rosetta Stone to a new physics, an energy generation and propulsion system responsible for interstellar space travel. This new system could have easily replaced oil, gas, coal, and nuclear plants - and with them, the entire geopolitical and economic order on our planet. But a cabal of bankers, the military-industrial complex, and Big Oil stopped it.

n May of 2017, I and twenty-eight others, met with Dr. Steven Greer out in Phoenix, Arizona, U.S.A. and were witnessed to multiple ETVs (ExtraTerrestrial Vehicles). They took the shape of four golden orbs of light. Over the course of the week, we witnessed many remarkable appearances; not just in daylight, as with the aforementioned orbs, but during night time.

I am qualified, therefore, to state without any doubt at all, that this audible recording of the Unacknowledged book that accompanies the documentary (iTunes, Netflix and siriusdisclosure ) is 100% real.

There are millions of us around the world who use CE5 protocols to contact the ETs with great success.

But this is the starting point for the state of the situation.

* The Truth of Roswell
* The planned fake-alien attack (think 9/11 on a global scale, being planned by the human deep-state cabal; a plan, that has been ready to role since the early sixties.
* The truth of the faked abductions
* How the truth his hidden in plane sight
* The corruption of the media
* The intimidation of the those in power
* What you can do to help the planet’s future
* Why the Zero Point Field has been available to us since Tesler’s day and how the deep-state murder and intimidate inventors who create clean energy and over-unity devices (more power out than in), in order to keep us on fossil-fuels.
* How we know there are NO HOSTILE ET civilisations in the universe.
* How we know that the human fact is the only threat to itself.
* The man-made android ‘alien’s’ used in fake abductions.
* And much more…

This audiobook is the only truth on the matter. Disregard all the other ‘scary alien’ books. Much of it is written by paid stooges of the deep-state or unqualified people who have never had ‘access control’ to the secret ET projects.

Dr. Steven Greer is the real deal on this subject.

We all want to believe. The truth is still out there. The X-Files have been reopened. IDW Publishing and series creator Chris Carter have authorized new investigations into the weird, the strange, and the mysterious. New York Times best-selling author and multiple Bram Stoker Award winner Jonathan Maberry brings together some of today's top storytellers for a series of anthologies featuring all-new stories from the X-Files. Scully and Mulder continue their journey into darkness as they face aliens, monsters, shadow governments, and twisted conspiracies.

Four episodes of the ever-popular BBC Radio 4 panel game chaired by Nicholas Parsons, which showcases Paul Merton, one of the series' key players. Paul Merton is one of Just a Minute's well-loved contestants, whose surreal sense of humour has made him a pleasure and delight to listen to. These episodes showcase his highlights - the moments which reveal him at the very top of his game.

It's not how long an audible is, it's the pleasure you get from it; how repeatedly you listen to it. Just A Minute is a clear favourite of mine. With my £10 credit I got for spending 3 audible credits, this Paul Merton classics edition is a great bonus.

Well worth it.

'Out of the secret world I once knew, I have tried to make a theatre for the larger worlds we inhabit. First comes the imagining, then the search for reality. Then back to the imagining, and to the desk where I'm sitting now.' The Pigeon Tunnel, John le Carré's memoir and his first work of nonfiction, is a thrilling journey into the worlds of his 'secret sharers' - the men and women who inspired some of his most enthralling novels - and a testament to the author's extraordinary engagement with the last half century.

The Pigeon Tunnel is one of the most enjoyable (and play-again-able) autobiographies I have read/heard in a long time. I would rank it higher, even, than Forsyth’s.

The name dropping, the casual interaction with men and women of history shows them in a truly human, honest way (with the exception of Thatcher, who, as we all know, was neither--even an author like Le Carre can do very little; had he, it would count as fiction) in which the media and, aptly, the intelligence engineering behind it, works to recast.

Brilliantly read, it is not merely a ‘readers guide to the novels’ but a life that highlights many of the origins of his novels and characters. A fan of the BBC radio dramas (available here on Audible), I have a new desire to persue the many remaining novels.

A comfortable and endearing addition to my library.
