Title: Lives of Harry Lime ?
Post by: Ed on July 24, 2017, 01:55:45 PM
Today I listened to The Lives of Harry Lime starring Orson Welles: an episode entitled Blackmail is a Nasty Word.

Or perhaps I should say, 'Today I listened to The Half-life of Harry Lime'.

Thanks are due to the BBC cretin who arranged to broadcast this 28 minute episode in a 19 minute timeslot.

You know Ed I've a strange sense of Déjà Vue here ... from earlier broadcasts of that episode.
