Format: Audio CD Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I remember listening to Dick Barton's adventures the first time round - they thrilled me then and they still do today. Leaving aside the most awfully posh voices of Dick and Inspector Perry and the dreadful cockney and forced Scots accents, not forgetting the worst Welsh accent of all time, and Dick Barton and co. still have that spark of magic which makes me want to hear more. The storyline, as is the case with all the adventures, is a little far fetched, but it still grips the imagination especially the cliff hangers at the end of each episode. The signature tune, Devil's Galop, does admittedly grate a little after a while, but that is only because we are treated to the whole story on 4 CDs - no waiting for the next day's episode as we did back in the late 1940s early 1950s. The BBC may not have had the foresight to archive the original tapes, but I am so glad that the National Film and Sound Archive Australia saw fit to do so. More please.

There are 4 cd's in the set with a running time of 3hours 35 minutes. A full-cast radio drama by Edward J. Mason.

If you were one of those people who used to be glued to the radio for the next thrilling installment of the intrepid Dick Barton, then this CD set is for you. There are several episodes on each CD so you can listen to fifteen or twenty minutes at a time and not miss the plot.

It brought back some wonderful memories of when I was a child sat on the sofa with my siblings and parents with a nice fire blazing in the hearth (before we had a television) we couldn't wait for the wonderful signature tune to start playing so that we could listen to the exciting world of espionage and adventure that Dick Barton ex-commando captain turned secret Service Agent and his pals Snowey and Jock became embroiled in.(Listening to them now makes me realise how tame they were but such a pleasure and not a swear word in earshot).

In this story, Dick, Snowey and Jock are on the trail of the 'Vulture' Tony Patelli, a criminal mastermind who has stolen a lorry-load of gold bullion. The trio have to save a kidnapped girl from Patelli's clutches and recover the gold.

There's plenty of action with car chases, a train smash a ship wreck and plenty of bullets flying as the trio try to accomplish their task to nail the Vulture.

Little gems well worth another listen and throughly enjoyable.

From the opening stirring music you know you are to be treated to an exciting adventure with 'Dick Barton - Special Agent'. I do not remember these from the radio, but listened to it with someone who did. They loved being transported back to their childhood days and the thrilling tales they listened to in their youth.
Whilst it does sound a little dated compared to radio programmes of today, if you enter into the spirit of it then you will find yourself swept away. This is an enjoyable way to pass some time - I recommend it if you like tales of adventure.

"I always wanted to meet Davey Jones. He's got a locker or something, hasn't he?"
"We'll let you know in about ten minutes time, ducks."

AudioGo's latest 4CD set offers another chance to take a trip back to the golden age of radio potboilers and for modern audiences to try to work out whether their predecessors ever took this sort of thing seriously or whether the show was written and listened to with tongue firmly in cheek. Setting Barton and his sidekicks on the trail of a notorious blackmailer and master criminal who holds the country in terror, it's filled with more stereotypes than you can shake a stick at and enough ethnic stereotyping to induce palpitations in the more zealously politically correct. Take the villain himself, ana oudrayjuss Eyatalyano wivva da mows ova da topp aksend you's evva deed heyah - even Barton berates him for his "ice cream accent," unable to take seriously a mastermind who doesn't speak proper English: "You the Vulture - a cheap little hash slinger? Oh come off it, old horse, you haven't the nerve!" As if that wasn't bad enough, in later episodes we're also treated to what might just be the world's worst Chinese accent, not to mention women who break down over the slightest little thing, like being left to die in a burning building ("Sorry I got depressed for a moment") before finally bucking up and realising their proper place in the Boys Own Adventure scheme of things ("Don't worry about me just because I'm a girl. I don't want to be a hindrance.").

As with AudioGo's other Dick Barton serials, since the original BBC broadcasts no longer exist, this is presented in an Australian version with a different cast that was performed from the same scripts with all the political incorrectness intact, and particularly good audio quality too.

In the past I've only dabbled in old time radio shows, so had never heard of Dick Barton before. I had no idea that the memorable signature tune (which I must have heard hundreds of times) belonged to this great show either.

For me the most enjoyable aspect of the programmes is that they transport the listener back to a period very different to the one we live in now - I wasn't around back then but this set allows me to get a feel for what it must have been like to huddle around the wireless eagerly awaiting the next instalment - a simple pleasure not experienced in these high tech times.

I will certainly be purchasing further sets if the rest are as good as this!
