    "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" is considered one of the greatest tales of horror to date. When Australian producer George Edwards added in his production and vocal skills, a true radio serial classic was born.

George Edwards lent not only his production skills to Jekyll and Hyde, but shared his amazing vocal talents as well. Edwards' skill to do multiple voices in a single episode definitely fit the needs of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, with it being a lower budget affair. The intense pacing of each episode as well as the high quality production values and the talented voice of the cast make...read more

    Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde is a novella written by the Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson and first published in 1886. It is about a London lawyer who investigates strange occurrences between his old friend, Dr Henry Jekyll, and the misanthropic Edward Hyde. The work is known for its vivid portrayal of a split personality, split in the sense that within the same person there is both an apparently good and an evil personality each being quite distinct from each other; in mainstream culture the very phrase 'Jekyll and Hyde' has come to mean a person who is vastly different in moral character from one situation to the...read more

    Night. The day has gone. Departed. And the dark embrace, the inky shadows of night descend. For many a time to unwind and slumber. For some a nagging doubt that all is not well. That some primeval and primordial happening may yet go bump in the night.But for our poets the night is a time of wonder and imagination as well as many other emotions and feelings. Among our ranks of gloried talents are Keats, Coleridge, William Morris, DH Lawrence, Whitman, Longfellow and many more besides. Their descriptions capture what they see and feel as perhaps only a poet can. Among our ranks of gloried talents are Thomas Hood, Gerard Manley Hopkins, Robert Louis Stevenson, John Clare, Herman...read more
