Overview

Douglas Kelly stars as "Dick Barton – Special Agent" in a thrilling adventure for radio’s classic hero.

The adventures of special agent Dick Barton and his friends Jock and Snowey originally ran on BBC Radio between 1946 and 1951. Set in an exciting world of criminal masterminds, espionage and adventure, the series was essential listening for an entire generation.

Sadly, very few of the BBC’s original recordings still survive—but in 1949 a number of early Barton tales were re–recorded for transmission overseas. Starring Douglas Kelly, these re–stagings found new audiences in Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. Over 300 of these international recordings were rediscovered in the National Film and Sound Archive of Australia in 2009—allowing listeners finally to relive the escapades of the great Dick Barton.

In this episode: Barton is on the trail of Tony Patelli, a criminal mastermind who has stolen a truckload of gold bullion. Can Barton save a kidnapped girl from Patelli’s clutches? Can he defeat the Vulture?
