Whose Body? first introduced Lord Peter to the world and begins with a corpse in the bath of a London flat. Clouds of Witness finds Wimsey investigating murder close to home, and in Unnatural Death he investigates the suspicious demise of an elderly woman. First broadcast on BBC radio in the 1970s and presented here in their entirety, these full-cast adaptations are admired by fans of the genre worldwide.

Paul Temple lives again in these five complete radio dramas starring Crawford Logan as Paul and Gerda Stephenson as his redoubtable wife, Steve. Each of these productions was made for BBC Radio 4 in an authentic 1950s-style studio conditions and based on the scripts of the original radio serials.
