I had this in my wish list since it was released and I'm so glad I took the plunge. Before the story starts you are given a mini biography of the author. In order to find out more off I went to Google Mr Postgate and it was a joy to find out that his son was the creator of my child hood heros the Clangers, Nogging the Nog and of course that wonderful old cloth cat Bagpuss. Anyway I digress....
Told in the following 3 parts..the Jurors, of which we learn a little of each and in amongst them we have a hairdresser, an actor, a gay Greek scholar, a murderer and a trade unionist. The Accused and finally the Trial.
Set in the 40s, so it's not to gory or has gratuitous swearing in it, we are treated to a story which flows along nicely. There are moments of comedy plus some ' of the time stereotypes' which is to be expected. On the whole it's a decent who-dun-it but not edge of seat nail biting stuff.
David Thorpe does an excellent job with all the voices.
I'm glad it's been resurrected.
Off to YouTube Bagpuss :)
