A Ghostly Victorian Entertainment

in Daily Programme, Radio Drama

by Elrik Merlin on Saturday, 29 December, 2012

Today on Radio Riel as we wind down towards the end of the year — and of the holiday season — we will be featuring music of the Victorian and Edwardian periods, including a dash of seasonal material from Revels and other groups.

In addition, we’ll be featuring three Ghost Stories for Christmas written by the Edwardian author E F Benson. Two of the three are full‐cast dramatisations by the Radio Riel Players, while the third is read by Elrik Merlin. These will be broadcast at 11am and 7pm Pacific time (19:00 and 03:00 GMT). Each lasts about half an hour, so the entire programme will run for about an hour an a half. The stories are as follows:

  • How Fear Departed from the Long Gallery  — full cast dramatisation, performed by the Radio Riel Players (36 mins)
  • The Bus‐Conductor - read by Elrik Merlin (23 mins)
  • The Room in the Tower — full cast dramatisation, performed by the Radio Riel Players (33 mins)

Today’s programme is presented by Elrik Merlin.
