Format: Audio CD
The set of Sexton Blake recordings available on CD amounts to only around nine or ten episodes out of those originally broadcast. This is, I suspect, because they were sourced from recordings made on home equipment, rather than anything held in the BBC archives. The missing episodes also exist, but the sound is rather poor and AudioGo (who effectively bought out BBC Audio) took a commercial decision not to release them because of the number of people who would have complained, wanted refunds etc.

I've listened to these CDs in the car and found them all to be perfectly audible, with the exception of the last episode, Murder on the Portsmouth Road, which technically qualifies as a freebie any way. This is only fair, because it pre-dates the William Franklyn episodes by 37 years and comes from 1930, one of the oldest drama recordings around. This episode stars Arthur Wontner, the original radio Sherlock Holmes and comes from a shellac 78rpm record. The biggest problem it has is that the stormy night is represented throughout by someone wobbling & bashing a large steel sheet and this does cause problems with the dialogue, given the age and quality of the recording.

The only thing I can really find to complain about here is the introduction at the start of each episode, which says something akin to "There is no name more famous in the annals of crime detection than Sexton Blake". Well sorry, Sexton old chap, but I think Sherlock Holmes might have you there :-)

Fun formula adventure from the hackneyed radio series. Enoyable. But sound levels are a problem. Music between scenes plays so much louder than the dialogue that you either have to play so quietly you can't hear the speaking or the noisy music irritates. A bit of tech tweaking by the BBC before release would not hurt.

This is a radio show I have heard about from a long time ago, thought I would give it a go. Brilliant hearing William Franklyn.

British private detective Sexton Blake has been a staple of the pulp fiction trade for over a century. Originally a poor man's Sherlock Holmes, he has transcended the original magazine format to feature in books, radio plays and film over several decades. This audio release gives us three half hour radio plays from the late sixties, starring William Franklyn as Sexton Blake, and as a bonus ten minutes of a 1930s recording starring Arthur Wontner. There are two discs (2 episodes disc 1, episode 3 and bonus on disc 2) in a fold out jewel case.

Lilies For The Ladies - Blake is intrigued whan the fourth wealth woman in a row is murdered, leaving fortunes to husbands with iron clad alibis. Is there a link?

The Sin Eater - Blake bumps into an old friend in a country pub. The friend tells him about a mysterious set of messages he has recieved through the post. Can Blake deduce the meaning of the messages and lay his hands on the mysterious Sin Eater?

Bluebeard's Keys - While on holiday the key to the house of a murdered woman is posted to Blake. As morekeys are posted an more bodies turn up can Blake deduce the identity of Bluebeard in time to save a life?

Murder on the Portsmouth road - Blake and Tinker happen to stumble across a dead body on a dark and stormy night. Who was he and who killed him? They have 10 minutes to find out!

The plays are OK, but due to their short format they never have time to do anything interesting, and all feel a bit rushed. Lovers of old comedy will relish the chance to hear a guest appearance from James Beck (Private Walker from Dad's Army), and Heather Chasen (Navy Lark) as Blake's secretary.
