Album Remarks & Appraisals:
Four classic dramas from the pens of J B Priestley, William Makepeace Thackeray and Laurence Sterne. These episodes of Theater Royal were first broadcast in 1952-3. This was the only radio series in which Laurence Olivier took part and these vintage adaptations find new life with each new generation of fans. In this set, Sir Ralph Richardson leads in three episodes, with Margaret Lockwood starring as 'Becky Sharpe', with a top (anonymous) supporting cast selected by the BBC.
