'The history of crime detection has produced no more famous name than that of Sexton Blake'. William Franklyn stars as paperback hero Sexton Blake, with David Gregory as his assistant Tinker, in four original BBC Radio dramatisations from 1967. Lost from the BBC archives for over 40 years, these rediscovered episodes are presented on CD for the very first time. "The Eight Swords": When a woman is found dead at Paula's hair salon, Sexton Blake is called in to investigate. "A Murder of Crows": Over the past six weeks, two men have been murdered. And both shared the name George Crow. "Double and Quit": The top-secret Department 7 recruit Sexton Blake as a special agent. "You Must Be Joking": A friend from Blake's club dies the day after receiving a sinister limerick. Special bonus episode: "Murder on the Portsmouth Road": In one of Britain's earliest surviving drama recordings (from 1930), Arthur Wontner stars as Sexton Blake, tracking down a killer on a stormy night.
