You don’t know South African radio? You’ve got some good stuff to discover.

Scott, Springbok sounds interesting, and I have never heard of it before.  As for the BBC Sherlock Holmes episodes prior to 1962, I don't know.  I think the OTRR Library has some South African and some Australian programs from the old-time radio era, but I have not noticed anything from the BBC, Radio Canada, Radio France, Deutsche Welle or Radio Japan.  Someone else can perhaps better explain the principle of inclusion and exclusion followed by the library in determining what to add to the collection.

I have 210 BBC Sherlock Holmes episodes ranging from 1945 to 2010. Would we consider the 65 that are prior to 1962 OTR? Or is the BBC just BBC? And I have 47 Springbok episodes from the 80’s. You can’t not like Springbok (Squad Cars!) but you just can’t call it OTR. I kind-of think OTR is an American thing. Fun to talk about.

Scott, I have dozens of BBC dramas on cassettes, and most of the ones I have listened to are very good.  I do not think that any are in the OTRR Library collection, probably because most people do not consider them to be old-time radio.

 

Thank you for your comments about The Little Things in Life.  It seems that you might think it qualifies as an old-time radio series.

Although not American, the BBC never stopped doing drama. The CBC continued into the 1990's at least, and South Africa and Australia were doing OTR type shows into the 1980's. A treasure trove is out there, waiting to be listened to. More drama, adventure and comedy than anyone could listen to in two lifetimes. And most, if not all of it top quality productions.
