Childhood memories

This was an excellent series. I loved listening to it. It was exciting waiting to hear the next story the following week. Nice to know a new generation can enjoy these remaining stories.

Atmospheric and spine-tingling a must listen.

These short performances are amazing. My interest was kindled by previous audible reviews as I love black and white British films of this era. It's a good listen for night time with a candle by your bed, but very very spooky so I waited till I wasn't alone in the house.... It's such a shame the rest of the series were lost and only 4 remain. Wish they were found in some lofty attic....yikes.!
