As most of you know from my profile I have been blind since birth. But it hasn't stopped me from leading a fully capable life full of enjoyment adventure love and hapiness. So last week when "Blindness was released in theaters I had to see if our pals at the BBC had released the book as a drama. They have and it's good. Two surprises. One it's in stereo so enjoy and if you like the sound email us at brunch@london.com Second this play contains sceens which may not be suitable for the ears of younger listeners. I highly urge you to practice guidence when listening with children. Enjoy..

What's one of Fred Bertelsen's greatest atributes? You can say fine radio host outstanding co host has an extemperaneous side is willing to help anyone with anything otr or BBC related but he's also a bit of a snoop. In a good way. This is a program called dDead Fall and was part of the CBC mystery project or as they say project take the pro part likepro sports and you get the idea. Anyway Mystery Project actually put several BBC plays among its titles and here's one of them. You might also enjoy the Winter Olympic update from Salt Lake in 02. Please enjoy the man in blue as he flies solo for this little surprise. Questions? Coments? brunch@london.com oh and btw if you've ever wanted to hear me live not that you've wanted to but if you do I'm on tomorow over at http://www.radiooutofthepast.org playing classic old time radio.

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

And so this week we begin Brideshead Revissited. It's the story of Charles Rider and his friendship with Sebastian Flight. We look back with Charles from his time as a captain in the infantry in 1944. The story really begins in 1923 with the introduction of Charles and Sebastian. 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. Btw gang I leave for the desert on Thursday so I won't get the show until I get home. These aniversaries. Only come once a year and Mrs. Cox and I need a vacation. Don't forget to email us at brunch@london.com enjoy

We begin with the second episode of "The Newly Discovered Casebook of Sherlock Holmes," with the story of the "Obese Escapologist," then we continue with part 3 of Slipstream. aAfter that we begin the Hitchhikers Guide To the Galaxy. What is the answer to life the universe and everything in it? Well gang if you've seen the film hear the radio series that literally started it all. Oh yes before the book there was a radio series. And Uncle Fred is playing parts 1 and 2. Please please please enjoy and remember if you don't like the programs ... don't panic. Remember to send email to brunch@london.com we'd love to hear from you.
