The Nuremberg Trial
- By: John Tusa, Ann Tusa
- Narrated by: Ralph Cosham
- Length: 25 hrs and 45 mins
Here is a gripping account of the major postwar trial of the Nazi hierarchy in World War II. The Nuremberg Trial brilliantly recreates the trial proceedings and offers a reasoned, often profound examination of the processes that created international law. From the whimpering of Kaltenbrunner and Ribbentrop on the stand to the icy coolness of Goering, each participant is vividly drawn.

Somewhat disconcerting to listen to at first, as the narrator sounds uncannily like Enoch Powell. However, a fascinating account of Nuremberg.
Busman's Honeymoon (Dramatised)
- By: Dorothy L. Sayers
- Narrated by: Ian Carmichael, Sarah Badel, Peter Jones, and others
- Length: 2 hrs and 24 mins
- Original Recording
Lord Peter Wimsey has married at last, having finally succeeded in his ardent pursuit of the lovely mystery novelist Harriet Vane. The two depart for a tranquil honeymoon in a country farmhouse but find, instead of a well-prepared love nest, the place left in a shambles by the previous owner. His sudden appearance, dead from a broken skull in the cellar, only prompts more questions. Why would anyone have wanted to kill old Mr Noakes? What dark secrets had he to hide?

I thought I was getting the book but it turned out to be a performed play. Good as far as it went, but I would have preferred the whole story.
