|Patricia Hodge, Nicky Henson and Brenda Blethyn star in a BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of Dodie Smith's canine classic.
These audio editions, especially dramatised for BBC Radio, are of timeless stories that have enchanted generations of readers both young and old. The wonder and excitement of these much-loved tales live on in these acclaimed full-cast dramatisations, complete with evocative music and sound effects.
Pongo lives happily with his human pets Mr and Mrs Dearly in a large house in Regent's Park. When his wife Missis produces a litter of fifteen beautiful pups, life seems wonderfully complete. But the mysterious disappearance of the puppies suddenly throws everything into turmoil.
Pongo, one of the keenest brains in Dogdom, quickly realises the culprit is the unspeakably wicked Cruella de Vil, and that he and Missis are the only hope for their youngsters' survival. Together the fearless pair set out on a long, bleak journey, enduring terrible conditions and adversities, but helped all the way by dogs across the land, including the gallant Colonel, a sheepdog of the Old School.
Dodie Smith's heart-warming adventure retains all its mischief and humour in this BBC Radio 4 dramatisation, also starring Joan Sims, Sheila Steafel and Maurice Denham , narrated by Dorothy Tutin .
