Superb productions from a bygone age...
The production is simply lovely with outstanding performances from the cast particularly John Gielgud and Ralph Richardson as Holmes & Watson.
What is lovely is to hear a quality piece from the 1950s. The stories were co-produced by the BBC in the UK and ABC in the USA. This explains the American continuity announcer that loudly and proudly introduces each episode.
The audio quality is very good throughout but watch out for Holmes' violin playing - it does tend to hit the high notes and came as quite a shock through my earbuds.
Naturally the stories are superb and the production team really understood how to make radio drama narrative work well.
Treat yourself to a very reasonably priced treasure...
