    On that compilation there is also an episode of Sir Francis Drake, which I thoroughly enjoyed .... at least I think I did....... I'd probably best watch them all again and make sure I know for sure about that of which I speak......... for next time

    I don't think you need to apologize for this error. I have found at least 2 instances of completely erroneous dvd library listings involving Marius Goring's work. I'm pretty sure if the dvd collection you have is the one with all the swashbuckling adventures, it actually does say the adventures of the scarlet pimpernel on it. The WORST experience I've had with this was just this week, as the Library of Congress listing for the 1960 bbc tv version of Anna Karenina clearly states that Marius Goring is in it as Karenin, a pretty big role. i watched the entire tedious thing, he's NOT EVEN IN IT! AARRGGHH! Thank God I didn't buy it.

    At archive.org you can listen to a stream or download every episode for free. I put them all on my phone and I listen to them at work.

    I've just realised most of these have The Trout which makes it an essential purchase. Stupid overdraft

    Well if you also bought the Edgar Wallace volumes issued the same day from Network think how much more you'd be saving

    If I added the Human Jungle, the saving on postage would make them practically free
