As we close out 2014,  I thought it'd be kind of fun to introduce or re introduce you to my love of early science fiction.  So we look at Verne's Journey To The Center of the Earth.  It's a wonderful story and well dramatized from december 9 of 1995.  Enjoy

However don't let the title fool you as we delve deep in to archives to bring you an exciting version of "A Christmas Carol," with Ralph Richardson as narrator and Scrooge.  It's basically Sir Ralph and a few cast members given some lines and when you listen to mid sixties BBC drama you note the differences.  Gone is the enhanced sound so they used the literature.  Enjoy.  We'll also start the show by remembering the amazing Christmas of the Trenches of 1914 and we conclude with another ghost story the Shepherd.  On behalf of Maria and Sophie the Dog I'd like to wish you all the happiest of Christmasses and we'll conclude Season 7 next week with a drama of epic proportion.  Enjoy

If you've been a listener to this podcast you know how much we look forward to our yearly chat with audio drama actor radio presenter and now recently retired John Lingard from Lincolnshire in the United Kingdom.  John has read us books presented original programs on the history of British broadcasting and come up with lots of filler and intro matterial for this humble podcast.  So it's a pleasure at this time of holidaay reflection to welcome him back.  This time skype worked.  So well in fact we're considering more pannel discussions.  We hope you enjoy our conversation as we tackle the privatization of trains Black Friday, is pub life changing?  Does Prince George have playmates?  and the excitement of the upcoming National Association of broadcasters convention in Vegas plus New Media Expo.  Thanks again John for your work in this project.  We'll conclude with some genuine laughter as only Jerome K Jerome can dish it out with After Supper Ghost stories.  A good long brunch so why not fill a glass of your favvorite beverage and join us.

I begin this description by writing that when this show first started these were some of the first plays in my collection.  So I'm excited to present series 3 of Caesar.  Go back to ep 25 for series 1 if you'd like.  Anyhow this play discusses Victoria and Postumus of Gaul and the third century crissis Galinus had in defending and keeping control of Rome.  British actors make great Romans.  Enjoy.
