Publisher's Summary

Douglas Kelly stars in another thrilling adventure for radio's greatest hero. Heralded by an instantly memorable signature tune, the adventures of Dick Barton and his friends Jock and Snowey originally ran on the BBC Light Programme between 1946 and 1951. Very few of the BBC's original recordings still survive, however, in 1949 some were re-recorded for transmission overseas. Starring Douglas Kelly, these re-stagings found new audiences in Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.
Over 300 of these 'international' recordings were rediscovered in the National Film and Sound Archive of Australia in 2009 and allow listeners finally to relive the escapades of the great Dick Barton. In this exciting story, Dick, Snowey and Jock are called in to help when a Hollywood film star starts receiving death threats. What does it mean? Can they thwart the sinister Conrad Ruda? Find out in this next exciting instalment of 'Dick Barton - Special Agent'!
