Radio Detective Story Hour Episode 201 – Witness For the Prosecution

Agatha Christie Up in this podcast, a look at the inverted detective story, thanks from a tip by Cameron Estep. Unfortunately, there isn’t a really good example on radio of one, but a close contender is a play from the Molle Mystery Theater via the AFRS Mystery Theater called “Witness for the Prosecution” based on a play and short story by Dame Agatha Christie.

Based on the wonderful film of the same name, it fits the bill though without a detective. Enjoy this not often heard radio play.

Music under is “King of Sorrow” performed by Sade.

    Hi Jim,
    I agree with your choice in chose the famous Christie story/stage play Witness for the Prosecution. The Suspense version of Vickers’s story is a bit confusing to listeners. I hope you got my other two suggestions about using T.S. Stribling’s A Passage to Benares and Dickson Carr’s the 9 Wrong Answers which was recycled from a Suspense radio play called Will You Make a Bet With Death? Please send reply as soon as you can. Again thanks for this new podcast and for mentioning my name in this one.

    This would be “Witness in Death” by JD Robb (aka Nora Roberts). Thanks for letting me know.
