Penguin presents Roald Dahl's The BFG, read by actor, writer, and Britain's Got Talent judge David Walliams. This audiobook features original music and sound design by Pinewood film studios. The BFG is a nice and jumbly giant. In fact, he is the only big friendly giant in Giant Country. All the other giants are big bonecrunching brutes, and now the BFG and his friend Sophie must stop them guzzling up little human beans - with some help from Her Majester, the Queen.

A BBC Radio 4 Series in which physicist Brian Cox and comedian Robin Ince take a witty, irreverent and unashamedly rational look at the world according to science. Originally broadcast from 30 November 2009 - 21 December 2009.

What disappointed you about The Infinite Monkey Cage: Complete Series 1 (BBC Radio 4)?

It was described as being a fun and educational series but in reality was some people going off on tangents talking about science politics. I was really looking forward to listening to this but I am disappointed with what I heard.

What will your next listen be?

Unsure

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Brian Cox?

No one. Brian cox is brilliant.

What character would you cut from The Infinite Monkey Cage: Complete Series 1 (BBC Radio 4)?

No characters in particular, just cut a load of the waffling.

The stories are so slowly read that it makes listening very boring. Would not recommend.
