Just William: A BBC Radio Collection : Classic Readings from the BBC Archive CD-Audio

Narrated by Martin Jarvis


A stunning collection of Just William stories, selected and read by Martin Jarvis'There's nothing to touch them' - Independent on SundayRichmal Crompton's stories featuring irrepressible schoolboy William Brown have been firm favourites with both young and old for decades.

Perpetually scruffy, mud-stained and mischievous, he is a lovable scamp whose pranks usually end in disaster - for his harassed elders at least. With friends Ginger, Douglas and Henry (the Outlaws) and the angelic thorn-in-his-side, the lisping Violet Elizabeth Bott, William has rightly joined the literary, and radio, immortals. Martin Jarvis, who has been hailed as 'the wizard of the talking book' (The Daily Telegraph), has made the voice of William his own, and this collection of 54 laugh-out-loud stories will delight long-standing fans and first-time listeners alike. Also included are two bonus interviews with Richmal Crompton, recorded in 1965 and 1968. The stories included in this collection are:The Christmas TruceOnly Just in TimeThe Midnight Adventure of Miss MontagueWilliam and the MusicianWilliam Leads a Better Life William and the TwinsWilliam's BirthdayWilliam and the Little GirlThe Outlaws and Cousin PercyWilliam and the Princess GoldilocksThe Sweet Little Girl in WhiteA Birthday TreatThe Outlaws and the TripletsA Bit of BlackmailWilliam Makes a Night of ItWilliam and the Lost TouristThe Leopard HunterThe New NeighbourWilliam the PhilanthropistWilliam and the Prize CatWilliam Holds the StageWilliam and the School ReportAll the NewsAunt Arabelle in ChargeWilliam's Goodbye PresentWilliam the Salvage CollectorWilliam's Day Off Entertainment ProvidedWilliam and the Brains TrustWilliam and the BombWilliam Goes ShoppingViolet Elizabeth Runs AwayWilliam and the Real LaurenceThe Outlaws and the Hidden TreasureWilliam and the Fairy DaffodilThe Best Laid PlansMrs Bott's HatWilliam Starts the HolidaysWilliam Plays Santa ClausWilliam and the SnowmanRevenge is SweetWilliam and the Black CatWilliam and the Russian PrinceWilliam's Busy DayWilliam - The Great ActorWilliam and the White ElephantsFinding a School for WilliamWilliam's BirthdayWilliam Clears the SlumsParrots for EthelWilliam's Truthful ChristmasBoys will be BoysWilliam and the Ebony Hair-BrushWilliam and the Old Man in the FogDuration: 13 hours 15 mins
