BBC Radio 4Roy, our U.K. correspondent sez:

“It’s that time of the week when I get a chance to quickly scan the radio section of the Radio Times for the following week.”
And Here’s what he’s spotted….

An interesting take on the Dracula story…

The Voyage Of The Demeter
By Robert Forrest; Performed by a full cast
1 Part – Approx. 30 Minutes [RADIO DRAMA]
Broadcaster: BBC Radio 4 / Saturday Play
Broadcast: Saturday February 23rd @ 14:30-15:30
“It is 1897 and the schooner Demeter sails from Bulgaria to the east coast of England, but something very nasty is lurking in the dark corners of the ship. A chilling tale of the supernatural by Robert Forrest”.

This should be available through the “listen again” feature for 6 days following the broadcast.

Another dramatization! As the previous Discworld radio dramatisations have been “quite successful” Roy is making this his pick for the coming weeks….

Terry Pratchett’s Night Watch
By Robin Brooks; Performed by a full cast
5 Episodes – [RADIO DRAMA]
Broadcaster: BBC Radio 4

“Living in the past is hard. Dying in the past is incredibly easy. Commander Sam Vimes of the City Watch falls through time and arrives in his youth.”
