This episode gets direct credit from Fred Bertelsen. As all these shows we'll be hearing for the next few weeks were proams he originally wanted to play.

Don't forget next week we begin looking at Sherlock HOlmes again and we look at Winston Churchill's bodyguard. Enjoy.

I want to begin this overview by thanking David O'neil from Extinct Attractions. Just recently he played an intervew of himself done by another podcaster. Well if Dave can do it ... so can I. And I really wanted to share this one with you guys without starting another podcast. So here it is. Lst Saturday I participated in an interview roundtable with noted baseball historian and local radio talk show host Ira Fistel. We talked about a lot of stuff including the 1919 Black Sox Scandal how baseball games were originally thrown the difference between a 19th century and current game and the state of baseball broadcasting. The pannel includes myself, noted otr personality Larry Gassman, Mike Stern and our exultant chair Bob Acosta. It's an hour and a half. And I really hope you come away learning something. If you're a baseball fan you're gonna love it. Btw what does this have to do with Brunch or BBC? Nothing!! But if Gary Chambers can take four month breaks and David Bales can just disappear ... lol ... well I can digress sometimes. Enjoy.

Oh yes there's Peter Pan and "The Navy Lark," but our second hour is dedicated to the late Michel Jackson. This isn't a King Of Pop weekend filled with phone calls and songs heard over and over again but rather a Radio 2 docmentary called "Michael Jackson's Masterpiece." It discusses Thriller and what Thriller meant and symbolized. If this is your first time listening because you've just discovered us then I hope you come back when we return to normal. But for my loyal fans this hopefully will not disappoint. Remember you can email brunch@london.com or call 206-338-5879. Please enjoy.

It's Called "For One Night Illegally," and it traces the evolution of bootlegged recording. Anyone who remembers Springstein's famous line "Bootleggers roll your tapes." will love this show. Dixon ends its first run with us this week with George dealing with a gun toting soldier without Andy. And our boys in the Navy take a psychology test. Nothng unusal there but these are our boys. Next week we begin "When Disney Had Brunch," a four part look at original work that Disney adapted.

It's hard to believe that a little show started among a few friends with a passion for BBC radio has blossomed in to 70 episodes. And this week Brunch brings you music, commedy and police drama. I'd like to say that if you like Pink Floyd you'll love this show ... if you're a casual observer of the band you'll like this show and if you love the band and its psychedelic sound this will go in to your ipod along with your Dark Side of the Moon album. But we can't flood you with Floyd without taking a cruise on the HMS Troutbridge or learn from Officer Dixon about rowdy Spurs fans so ... say when ... and get ready to enjoy Brunch With The Brits.

Then we revissit that little island off the coast of Portsmouth where the seamen have hatched up a skeme to get duty free smokes. Unfortunately it's during an inspection. Then we turn to Pickwick. Since he won't pay he's off to debtor's prison.

There comes a time when people make mistakes. Even the Great Big Bird of Sesame Street fame or didn't you have Big Bird Sings when you were a child. Such was the case with Matt Cox last week when he unwittingly sent Fred Brideshead 3 for the final editing. Because of this and to keep the story current you're getting two episodes this week plus a Graham Green thriller from Fred. More about these in a moment but first a poll question. We open by asking you how you feel about different lengths of the show each week or two? Reason is BBC has so many 90 minute productions out we're holding back when we're not sharing. So would you mind some 90 minute plays? If so would you still mind if the other host plays an hour or would you rather see us keep to our two hour format? The neat thing about podcasts you can pause us if you need to. Please please please email us at brunch@london.com and let us know what you think. We'll keep discussing this as the answers come in and we thank you in advance for participating. When you email let us know who you are and where you're listening. I'm loving the hits and we'd love to know more a bit more about you and your favorite BBC programs. Even if you know nothing about the BBC and are learning from us let us know. Meanwhile this week. sSorry about the latenes. And the mistake. Perhaps it was the chocolate or the champagne or the strawberries as Heather and I relaxed in the desert. But if you want to know where we were vissit http://www.marriott.com/ctdca and take a look. Anyway you'll get Brideshead 2 and 3 this week from March 16 and 23 2003 followed by Graham Green's Ministry of Fear. This was originally broadcast on July 7 1973 but Radio 4 made it in to a two part two hour drama. Don't forget to email us your thoughts on 90 minute plays and we look forward to it. Matt and Fred

Remember this was a tv show and a recent film besides a book. As you listen pay attention to the different classes. We then spin out of this world with Fred to finish Hitchhikers and return to the little world of Don Camillo. Enjoy.

This was a fun serial for me. For we begin with Dan Dare Pilot of The Future. Campy? You bet. I mean come on Dan Dare is a hero from the fifties. British? I mean gang Dan and Digby are chattin about biscuits and tea while exploring Venus. bBut it's fun and I hope for the next four installments you let Dan in to your hearts. They've done no more Dan Dare since. After Dan Dare we'll listen to episode 2 of As Time Goes By. Jean and Lionel go on a "date," of sorts. Then Fred Bertelsen plays the first episode of "In The Valley of Fear." This is an Arthur Conan Doyle novel and I warn you. This is not Rathbone and Bruce but more of an accurate portrait of Sherlock Holmes. Please enjoy

Saturday Night Theater was a Radio 4 classic. And tonight's Brunch was no acception as we presented a whol hour and a half play. Remember the shot that killed Harry Lime? If you liked old time radio you do. This week we present "The Third Man," starring Ian Henri as Harry Lime and Rollo Martins being played by Philip Marlowe himself Ed Bishop or back then Edward Bishop. For those of you who don't know it's okay as "The Third Man," is what started it all. It spawned a ten episode BBC series back in the fifties after its release as a movie. It starred Joseph Cotton and Orson Wells. If you were a fan of the film you won't be disapointed with the play. Script is literally from screenplay. Enjoy. After the curtain comes down fred steps in to take us on the fourth installment of "The Bing Crosby Trail."
