THE BIG SLEEP A BBC Full-Cast Radio Drama

by | Read by Toby Stephens and a Full Cast

Mystery & Suspense • 1.5 hrs. • Audio Program • © 1939

Mystery master Raymond Chandler’s classic first novel finds full realization in this new BBC Radio drama, led by talented narrator Toby Stephens. The lean, crisp prose draws in the listener, and the production’s dramatic music and sound effects create a movie in the mind. Shoot-outs take on epic proportions as Philip Marlowe tracks down tough guys with square-jawed ruthlessness. Fans will find a new appreciation of Chandler’s prototypical P.I. in this production, and the depth of emotion created by the talented cast will dazzle new listeners.
