Episode 272 – The Final Six Suspects, Preparing for Pandemic

Six Suspects Radio DramaThis week we wrap our third part of Six Suspects by Vikas Swarup, adapted by Ayeesha Menon and produced by acclaimed BBC Producer John Dryden.

Vicky Rai, notorious son of a prominent Indian politician, shoots dead a waitress at a trendy Delhi restaurant.

At a lavish society party to celebrate his acquittal, he is himself murdered. Who did it? We wrap this gritty and gripping Indian whodunnit. If you like more of John’s work, hurry hurry to BBC Radio 4’s website where you can hear his new drama, PANDEMIC for a few more days now, and also check out his own website at Goldhawk.eu.

Prior to Six Suspects, we have our latest chapter of The Cleansed, wherein David, representing the Refuge, meets the clan master of the Dwellers, and John Prophet, Maria, and Luke make a getaway.

Radio Drama Revival – Episode 272

  • Steve S.

    Just listened to ‘6 Suspects’ and was BLOWN AWAY by the quality of the audio, acting, setting, and storytelling!  Just an immensely fine piece of work; yet more evidence that audio drama has tremendous potential to be a literary art form and not ‘just’ entertainment…

    Thank you, Steve! Really appreciate your feedback and YES John Dryden’s work is fantastic, utterly unforgettable gripping and shows us that radio drama is not some dusty medium lost in a closet… If you have not treated yourself to it already, I highly recommend his latest drama PANDEMIC which is fantastic: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01dzj1b
