The BBC have made excellent productions of the first four Falco books by Lindsay Davis.

The fourth production “The Iron Hand of Mars” will not be released by the BBC Radio collection due to poor sales of the previous releases.

I fear this will therefore spell the end of this excellent radio series, in the same way that the popular Inspector Allen series was scrapped for no obvious reason other than CD sales

I am delighted that the BBC has realised the commercial potential of its products. If it had done so 30 years earlier most of the archive would still be intact.

I am concerned however that as licence fee payer our listening is dictated by what the BBC can produce for re-sale.

Absolutely right one wonders why we pay the license fee at all. It is about time we got someone intelligent at the top of the BBC. Like you or me!
