Publisher's Summary

"The original and immortal stories of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle…"
Sir John Gielgud stars as Sherlock Holmes with Sir Ralph Richardson as Dr. Watson. John's brother, Val Gielgud, the celebrated mystery author and producer, directs several episodes and co-stars in one of them... as Sherlock's brother! As a finishing touch, Orson Welles plays the evil Moriarty. The shows created by this very special team are possibly the greatest Sherlock Holmes radio programs ever produced. This set features all sixteen episodes in their most complete surviving examples - taken from what currently exists of the syndication masters.
Come hear tales of mystery and murder, espionage and intrigue, revenge and resolution in the gas-lit London of Queen Victoria, hansom cabs, and one brilliant Baker Street detective.
