More About the Author

The author of almost a hundred books and the creator of Jeeves, Blandings Castle, Psmith, Ukridge, Uncle Fred and Mr Mulliner, P.G. Wodehouse was born in 1881 and educated at Dulwich College. After two years with the Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank he became a full-time writer, contributing to a variety of periodicals including Punch and the Globe. He married in 1914. As well as his novels and short stories, he wrote lyrics for musical comedies with Guy Bolton and Jerome Kern, and at one stage had five musicals running simultaneously on Broadway. His time in Hollywood also provided much source material for fiction. At the age of 93, in the New Year's Honours List of 1975, he received a long-overdue knighthood, only to die on St Valentine's Day some 45 days later.

Product Description

Review

"a delightful, entertaining, and hilarious listen... Horden’s spot-on rendition of the brilliant Jeeves is appropriately refined and demure, while Briers’s portrayal of Wooster captures the character’s flighty, bumbling, and good-natured essence." (Publisher's Weekly)

"… a joy from first to last, delivered with absolutely the right lightness of touch, full of fun, trivial yes, but utterly enchanting" (20/11/2009 Chichester Observer)

Book Description

Michael Hordern and Richard Briers star as Jeeves and Wooster in six BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatizations.

The literary output of Pelham Grenville Wodehouse was prodigious. Songwriting, plays and numerous books. Of all his work none have found a home in peoples hearts quite so much as his most famous creations, the perennial batchelor Bertie Wooster & his gentleman's gentleman Jeeves.
Bertie is always on the brink of disaster,(usually marriage), usually because of some interfering family member,(in particular the much feared Aunt Agatha),. It is then up to the unflappable Jeeves to calmly ensure the matter is sorted and normality promptly restored.
There have been many incarnations of this inimitable pairing with perhaps the television duo of Fry & Laurie being the most popular. For my money however the finest, funniest and most enjoyable work was done by the superb Richard Briers as Bertie & Michael Hordern as a simply unforgettable Jeeves. Their interpretation has Hordern as an older and infinitely wiser Jeeves who is almost a father figure to Briers' rather hopeless but well meaning ditherer. The two spark off each other to great effect and are given excellent support by the likes of David Jason, John Le Mesurier, Miriam Margolyes, Jonathan Cecil, Maurice Denham & Paul Eddington amongst others. The BBC's production values are at their best here with a very sharp script alongside great effects and a clear as a bell recording.
The six titles included are 'The inimitable Jeeves', 'The code of the woosters', 'Right Ho, Jeeves', 'Stiff upper lip, Jeeves', 'Jeeves and the feudal spirit' & 'Jeeves:joy in the morning'. The running time is around 17 hours.
These have all been around for some considerable time in CD format, never mind the audio cassette version, so what does the box set offer? Well frankly nothing new. If you already have these then this box set is of little use to you.

Unlike the patchy Fry & Laurie TV portrayals,which started well but where the scripts regrettably eventually evolved into something far removed from Plum's writing, these are absolute gems. The scripts are very sensitively adapted for radio drama and the quality and feeling of the books has been beautifully captured.

Michael Horden displays an effortless gravitas which surpasses even the Denis Price performance and Richard Briars reads superbly as Bertie.
But, particularly in comparison with the TV series, this series really scores in the magnificent supporting cast - we are treated to the definitive portrayal of Aunt Dahlia which is worth the price of admission alone as are the portrayals by Jonathan Cecil, Lisa Goddard and numerous others. The whole ensemble deliver quite inspired characterisations and they seal the success of a near flawless selection.

My only grumble is that I believe 'The Mating Season' was also recorded by the same cast and I can only presume that the original tapes/transcription must have disappeared as this has never been released. (Can anyone advise?)

There is no 'remastering' which might have been welcomed as the sound quality could have been cleaned up a little for CD release beyond that of the original cassettes but the production and acting are first class.

Outside of the books, which will always be the best way to encounter Jeeves and Wooster, this are quite wonderful performances and highly recommended for both the novice as the best way of easing into some of the finest comedy to be heard, and for the enthusiast, who will almost certainly own them in one form or another already.

The televised series with Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry is unbeatable but there are times when you just want to listen and create your own mental images. Who better than Richard Briers and Michael Horden to do that for you? From the packaging art work to the content, this series is flawless.

Treat yourself and be transported to an era depicted beautifully by Plum (P G Wodehouse). I never stop smiling as I listen.

I am a big fan of audio books and have listened to a number of P.G. Wodehouse audio books over the years by various actors. This is my favourite by far. Each story is fully dramatised using actors with voices just perfect for the role.

For those not familiar with the Jeeves and Wooster books prepare to laugh a lot. The stories involve larger than life characters, bizarre situations and the calm assistance of Jeeves to put everything right again. Nothing that bad ever happens in the world of Jeeves and Wooster, it is the perfect audio book to relax with if you need cheering up and can be listened to time and time again.

I listened to these when they were first broadcast, and the cassette tapes were always favourites for my small daughters on long car journeys. Now I have the complete set on pristine CD's. Richard Briers was the perfect voice of Bertie, with his machine-gun fast delivery, his inspired goofiness and good nature. Standout for this listener was Vivian Pickles as Aunt Dahlia!

The other reviewers must be commended for their taste in favourably reviewing this product, but they do themselves a disservice by asserting that the television series also served well.

The radio series is the absolute zenith of comedy and high-quality radio-play. Laugh out loud funny and brilliantly produced. I have listened to the set dozens of times and also bought it for others as a fantastically received gift.

Buy this without delay! Toodle pip!
