The BBC has taken an unusual approach here. They have captured the audio from four episodes of the wildly popular television program "Fawlty Towers" and cleaned it up for radio (and audiobook). TV being a visual medium, the producers have thoughtfully filled in the blanks by having one of the characters, the Spanish waiter Manuel, tell us what's going on. The overall effect works, although the audio quality isn't what it would have been from a modern original radio production. But John Cleese (of the Monty Python comedy troupe) is so highly regarded that most listeners won't mind. D.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 98]
