From London to Cornwall, then to Italy and France, a short, shabby priest takes on bandits, traitors, and killers. Why is he so successful? The reason is that after years spent in the priesthood, Father Brown knows human nature and is not afraid of its dark side. Thus he understands criminal motivation and how to deal with it. The award-winning Colonial Theatre on the Air has dramatized G.K. Chesterton's Father Brown stories from The Innocence of Father Brown with a full cast, music score, and sound effects.
Included in Vol. 1:
"The Blue Cross"
Father Brown is traveling to London to attend a meeting of priests, and he is carrying with him a priceless silver cross, studded with blue sapphires. Flambeau, the thief, plans to steal it.
"The Secret Garden"
Father Brown is called to investigate the beheading of a man, committed in a closed garden. How did the murderer escape?
"The Queer Feet"
Father Brown investigates a death at the Vernon Hotel.
"The Flying Stars"
Father Brown has been invited to a Christmas masquerade, which becomes the target of a robbery.

Not the most exciting sleuth stories ever.

Any additional comments?

The cast reading is really enjoyable. However, the stories come through a little flat and bland.

The All Nice Cheeky Father Brown

A nice way to spend an hour or so with the cheeky Father Brown.
Quite straight work, but a welcome treat without full on the face depressive violence in most genres of today.

Not as good as I hoped

The actor playing Father Brown is good, the rest of the cast variable. The sound effects are exaggerated and irritating. The choice of music is inappropriate. But the stories are good. My advice is to try the BBC dramatisations instead.
