Welcome to Spent, an isolated and rather odd town somewhere in the North. Its singular inhabitants lead blackly comic lives, from Dr Chinnery, the lethally incompetent vet and Pauline, the monstrous Restart Officer at the Job Centre, to the hideously exacting Dentons who impose their disturbing habits and pet toads upon their visiting nephew Ben. These and other memorable townsfolk are ferried around by Barbara, a taxi driver half way through his sex change, and served by Mr Iingleby, who brings a whole new meaning to the term ´small shopkeeper´. Murderously funny and actuely observed, The League of Gentlemen´s highly acclaimed brand of comedy shows human nature at its most extreme, and most hilarious. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mark Gatiss, Steve Pemberton, Reece Shearsmith, and Full Cast. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/rt/bbcw/000146de/bk_rhde_002536_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
It is hard to resist a good, rousing pirate adventure! As with our other productions, Pirate Legends has been kept as historically accurate as possible. Pirate Legends tells the story of two of our earliest pirates (William Fly and Dixie Bull). Most of us have come to accept what Hollywood has given us over the years as pirate tales, but you will find no ´´Pirate Hero´´ here. What you will find is what history gave us...un-glamorized, and in most cases ruthless men who were the terrorists of their day. Pirate Legends was one of the first shows produced by Colonial Radio Theatre, and many years later, it´s still an irresistible, exciting adventure! 1. Language: English. Narrator: The Colonial Radio Players, Jerry Robbins. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/010174de/bk_rhde_002536_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
Ichabod Crane, a lanky, lean, superstitious school master, arrives to teach the children of Sleepy Hollow. As he vies for the attention of the lovely Katrina Van Tassel, his rival for her attention is the town rowdy, Brom Bones. Brom tries to scare Ichabod away with local superstitions and ghost tales. And soon enough, the ill-fated schoolmaster encounters a terrifying legend come to life: the Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow. Meticulously adapted to stay true to the mood and flavor of the book Washington Irving is most famous for, this Colonial Radio presentation won the Charles Ogle Award for the Best Fantasy Production of 2005. 1.

Hakotep´s flying pyramid has been grounded, but Ezren, Valeros, Merisiel and Harsk must enter the ancient tomb to deactivate the fleet of smaller flying pyramids poised to attack cities across Osirion. Deep inside the Pyramid of the Sky Pharaoh, an untouched tomb from the heights of Ancient Osirion, the heroes face undying guardians woken from ageless sleep, culminating in a final battle with the reborn Sky Pharaoh Hakotep himself. Unless they are able to defeat Hakotep and reunite the pieces of his sundered soul to send it into the Great Beyond, Osirion will enter a new age under the rule of a mummified pharaoh from the distant past.

The Planet Man, a campy and low-budget graduate of the Space Patrol school of juvenile entertainment, serves up plenty of breezy, not-to-be-taken-seriously adventure fun. It is the golly-gee-whillikers saga of Dantro, intergalactic troubleshooter for an organization known as the League of Planets. The League sends Dantro out into the celestial world to maintain law and order. Assisted by members of Earth´s first rocket expedition, Dantro pursues evildoers like Marston, the ruler of Mars, who possesses an insatiable appetite for interplanetary domination, and a pair of dese-dem-and-dose space pirates named Slick and Blackie, who sound like refugees from a B-gangster movie. This collection offers the second half of the series. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Phil Tonken, Joseph Boland, full cast.
