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.

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.

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.

Prime Time Boxing´s Sonny Liston vs. Cassius Clay combines the original radio with additional commentary by boxing legend Bill Cayton and award-winning sports commentator Bob Page. This recording has both the first fight in Miami February 25, 1964 and the May 25, 1965 rematch. At the time of the first bout, Cassius Clay had not yet changed his name to Muhammad Ali. The heavyweight champion of the world in early 1964 was a seemingly unbeatable behemoth known as Sonny Liston. A truly ferocious fighter, Liston had trampled through the heavyweight division en route to two title bouts with previous champion Floyd Patterson, doing the unthinkable by knocking Floyd out in the first round twice. No one believed that anyone then living could beat Sonny Liston. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Les Keiter, Howard Cosell, Russ Hodges, Bill Stern, Bill Cayton, Bob Page.
