Classic BBC Radio Plays From AudioGO Reviewed

The Holly And The Ivy - AudioGO
A few months back I received two audiobooks from AudioGo's Classic Radio Theatre Series. Both plays have a  seasonal theme and have a wonderful range of actors on each release.

Season's Greetings - AudioGO
Seasons Greetings by Alan Ayckbourn focuses on a holiday gathering in the Bunker home where the Season is far from consisting of Goodwill to all men. This comical farce was originally broadcast on BBC Radio in 1999 and stars Sophie Thompson, Bill Nighy, John Sessions, Geoffrey Palmer and Francis Barber.

The Holly And The Ivy by Wynarde Brown  looks at another family gathering but this time set in the 1950s. As the family of vicar gather at his vicarage for Christmas secrets and truths begin to unravel and the vicar begins to question his own values.

A dramatisation of Wynard Browne's original script, The Holly and The Ivy was originally broadcast in 1971 and stars Stephen Murray, Geoffrey Beevers, John Samson and Isobel Black.
