Dramatisations and readings of selected works by DH Lawrence - plus a radio play by Dan Allum and two bonus documentaries exploring Lawrence's life and writings Crowned 'the greatest imaginative novelist of our generation' by EM Forster, DH Lawrence has an undisputed place in England's canon of great authors. In this wide-ranging collection, dramatisations and readings of some of his major works are brought together, exploring themes such as romantic love and sexual desire, individual freedom, class division, war, the beauty of nature and the ugliness of industrialisation. This rich and varied anthology contains the radio productions of five of Lawrence's classic novels, and nine short stories and novellas. It includes: Goose Fair, The Christening, Daughters of the Vicar, Her Turn, Love Among the Haystacks, The Shades of Spring, Sons and Lovers, The Rainbow, Women in Love, The Fox, The Ladybird, Kangaroo, Rawdon's Roof and Lady Chatterley's Lover. Also featured is an original radio drama by Dan Allum, The Gypsy (inspired by Lawrence's The Virgin and the Gypsy), while two bonus radio documentaries - Great Lives and Michael Rosen: On the Trail of DH Lawrence - provide further insight into the inner life of the controversial author. Due to the archive nature of these recordings, sound quality may vary. With thanks to Keith Wickham, Greg Linden and Roy McMillan.Show more

Perivale, 1983. A column of smoke rises from the blazing ruins of a forgotten, decaying mansion. Perivale, 1883. In the sleepy village of Greenford Parva, Gabriel Chase is by far the most imposing edifice. The villagers shun the grim house, but the owner, the reclusive and controversial naturalist Josiah Samuel Smith, receives occasional visitors. The Reverend Ernest Matthews, for instance, Dean of Mortarhouse College, has travelled from Oxford to refute Smith's blasphemous theories of evolution. And in a deserted room upstairs, the Doctor and Ace venture from the TARDIS to explore the decaying mansion... Who - or what - is Josiah Smith? What terrible secret does his house conceal? And why does Ace find everything so frighteningly familiar? Ian Hogg, who played Josiah Smith in the original Doctor Who TV serial, reads Marc Platt's complete and unabridged novelisation, first published by Target Books in 1990.Show more
