A brand new eight-part recording of a lost archive Paul Temple mystery, starring Crawford Logan and Gerda Stevenson
From 1938 to 1969 crime novelist and detective Paul Temple and his Fleet Street journalist wife Steve solved case after case in one of BBC radio's most popular serials.
They inhabit a sophisticated, well-dressed world of chilled cocktails and fast cars, where the women are chic and the men wear cravats. And where Sir Graham Forbes of Scotland Yard always needs Paul's help with a tricky case.
The Temples are travelling to Egypt to research Paul's latest novel. As a favour to a young lady they've promised to make time along the way to deliver a pair of spectacles to Richard Sullivan, an employee of the Trans-Eurasian Oil Company.
But even before they board the B. O. A. C. flying boat at Poole, Paul and Steve have discovered a body in their hotel and nearly been killed themselves... and as they head for a stop-over in Sicily and then on to Cairo, they plunge deeper and deeper into a criminal conspiracy where the stakes are high, no one is who they seem, and danger lurks on every side...
This new production for BBC Radio 4 uses the original scripts, vintage sound effects and much of the original incidental music from a lost archive 1947 production. As far as possible, it is a technical and stylistic replica of how that production might have sounded had its recording survived.
