Req: Flashman by George MacDonald Fraser - otrbbc1960 - 01-05-2019

Any dramatizations besides Flashman at the Charge, and Flash for Freedom?

Thanks in advance!

I've never understood why this superbly written series hasn't inspired more radio dramatizations. I think there's only one movie, too. Why??

Back in 1993/1994 there were some readings
(not dramatisation) of some Flashman short stories that show up in this search
https://genome.ch.bbc.co.uk/search/0/20?q=Flashman&svc=9371569#search
The reader was Iain Cuthbertson.

Perhaps someone has copies of them to share.
I for one would love to hear them.

Were any of the readings done by the author (Fraser)?

If the BBC ever reads this, consider doing more Flashman material. There's a ton of content, and the quality is awesome--it's an incredibly addictive series.

I found a couple of these under the name Royal Flash
for a limited period I've put them on SoundCloud here.

Lets hope the tracker comes back sooner than later....

This is great. Is there a way to download these, or can I only listen on SoundCloud? Not seeing a download option anywhere.
