Although the dramatisation starts peculiarly with an explosives demonstration - don't let that put you off. David Robb makes a very good Richard Hannay and the drama faithfully follows the book to the extent of direct quotes from the text. Will they follow this up with some of Buchan's other great (but unseen works) such as Greenmantle - I hope so. As a collector of Buchan's work this ranks as a must have.
If you don't know the story and wish to while away a couple of hours with a good old fashioned thriller this is one to listen to again and again and again........!
