Shangri-la ...

... Hidden in a valley deep in the Tibetan Himalayas ( Him - ahh - lee - yers ) where the sun shines - the honey flows - and the Monks and peasants live in life prolonging Nirvana - the victims of an audacious kidnap ( in the best possible taste ) discover the real reason for their abduction.
It is a story well known to those of us now in our 50's and beyond but since the demise of the Sunday afternoon feature film, 'Lost Horizon' starring Ronald Coleman is seldom shown. Here the story is read by Michael de Morgan with a respect for it's genre and age - one of the great imaginative adventures of the between wars era.
Excitement - Romance - adventure - Humour - everything is here for a thumping good listen - it deserves to be re-discovered by a new generation.

Still worth a listen

A classic that I have never got around to reading. More than a little dated now but still worth a listen as long as you do not expect to much, ideal for late night listening or that journey in the car where you can not or should not be concentrating on anything but your driving.

Well read in a way that fits the period, put it on in the car and let it wash over you and the journey will go much quicker
