BBC Radio Productions
 
After much soul thought, I've decided to propose a discussion of the excellent BBC Radio Agatha Christie adaptions. You might argue that they come under the "Other Productions" heading. However, so numerous have they become that I feel it's now time for these sterling shows to have their own page. My own favourites are Murder in Mesopotamia, Murder at the Vicarage and Murder on the Orient Express. Which are yours and why? What do you think of the actors? Do you prefer these portrayals to their screen counterparts? Have you any news of forthcoming productions or releases? I look forward to hearing your thoughts!
