Read by Ronald Pickup

"Remember, remember
The 5th of November,
Gunpowder, treason and plot,
We know no reason
Why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot."

Who was Guy Fawkes ? Was he really the villain that popular myth would have us believe? What actually happened on that fatal '5th of November'? An exciting account of the conspiracy to blow up King James I and his government.

The Man in the Queue by JOSEPHINE TEY , abridged in 12 instalments by RONALD BANCROFT
Read by Simon Lack (1)
The time: between 7.0 and 8.0 o'clock on a March evening in the late 1920s.
The place: a theatre queue. A young man is stabbed. There are no identifying marks on his clothes, no one comes to claim his body. Who is he? Why was he killed? For Inspector Grant it is one of the most bewildering cases of his career. Producer PATRICIA BRENT
