‘Dick Barton – Special Agent’ is back!

After forty years, ‘Dick Barton’ - Britain’s favourite special agent - finally returns to the microphone. Tim Bentinck (David Archer in The Archers) and Terry Molloy (Mike Tucker in The Archers and Davros in Doctor Who) star in this all new live recording for BBC Audiobooks.

Using original BBC radio scripts from 1951, period recording equipment and live sound effects, this recreation of a long-lost radio classic brings back the BBC’s greatest special agent for one-night only.

The hero of the BBC Light Programme from 1946 to 1951, Dick Barton enthralled listeners with his own unique cocktail of freelance adventuring and king-and-country heroics. Now he’s coming to Leicester.
