Archer, Jeffrey2022
Two full-cast dramatisations of Jeffrey Archer's thrillers with narration by Jeffrey Archer himself Jeffery Archer is a New York Times bestselling author, published in over 37 languages across 97 countries. Jeffrey Archer's debut novel Not A Penny More, Not A Penny Less from 1976 is dramatised here in seven parts by Betty Davis; as well as his later work A Matter of Honour, which was recently rediscovered in the collection of an amateur archivist after the recording was lost on delivery to the BBC archives. The sound quality of A Matter of Honour may be affected as a result.Not A Penny More, Not A Penny LessThe conned: an Oxford don, a revered society physician, a chic French art dealer, and a charming English lord. They have one thing in common. Overnight, each novice investor lost his life's fortune to one man.The con: Harvey Metcalfe. A brilliant, self-made guru of deceit. A very dangerous individual. And now, a hunted man. With nothing left to lose, four strangers are about to come together - each experts in their own field.Their plan: find Harvey, shadow him, trap him, and destroy him - penny-for-penny. From the luxurious casinos of Monte Carlo to the high-stakes windows at Ascot; from the bustle of Wall Street to fashionable London galleries, their own ingenious game has begun.It's called revenge - and they were taught by a master.Narrated by Jeffrey ArcherHarvey Metcalfe - Stratford JohnsStephen Bradley - Paul DarrowAdrian Tryner - Francis MatthewsJean Pierre Lamanns - Edward de SouzaLord James Brigsley - Jeremy ClydeAnne Summerton - Lesley-Anne DownDavid Stein - Leonard FentonJorg Birrer - Sion ProbertMiss Melkie - Sonia FraserGiovanni - Sean ArnoldAdapted by Betty DaviesDirected by Glyn DearmanFirst Broadcast on BBC Radio 4 October and November 1980A Matter of Honour10th May 1966: The Tsar's Icon is a fake.
