Once a Week in Baker Street:
The Boucher-Green Years
by H. Paul Jeffers, BSI.
The 2005 Christmas Annual offers a look at The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes radio series in the years 1945 to 1947 when it was written by the famous team of Anthony Boucher and Denis Green. Noted author and Irregular H. Paul Jeffers (“Wilson Hargreave”) has used the correspondence between Boucher and Green to give us an insider’s perspective on the business of putting Sherlock Holmes on the air. See their disputes with producers! Thrill to their contempt for Petri Wine! Marvel at their ability to fill thirty minutes of airtime each week!
68 pages, December 2005
