I love BBC radio dramatizations, they bring the stories to life. However, i'm really annoyed the last part of Framley Parsonage is missing.

Period TV dramas are a little dull, though transfer the format to audio and I find them captivating. Time travelling for the mind. And these Barchester Chronicles are beautifully written and masterly dramatised by the BBC - loved every minute.
The stories revolve around the fictional town of Barchester and focus on local clergy and rural gentry. Perfect to sit and listen with a cup of tea.
Sounds lovely doesn’t it, though currently there’s an episode missing:
Framley Parsonage, Episode 3: ‘A Gift of Fire’.
So not sure how that story ends, thanks BBC for your lackadaisical QC. Their quality control has recently been slipping as ‘The Museum of Curiosity: Series 5-8’ is also incomplete.
Why didn’t I check before listening you may ask. Well the stories are broken into 302 chapters, is it too much to ask for just 1 chapter per episode?
These were originally broadcast during 2014-15, though the BBC also previously dramatised the Barchester Chronicle stories in 1995-98 (also available on Audible). Hopefully someone will have listened to both and leave a review on how they compare with each other, I’d be interested to know.
