Radio Documentary - Tuesday 26th July 8pm (UK Time)

Last year I was one of a number of Sherlockians who contributed to a documentary on Sherlock Holmes. It is finally going to be broadcast on the London Radio Station Resonance 104.4 FM.

Here is the synopsis from the station themselves:


In July 1891 the first Sherlock Holmes adventure, 'A Scandal in Bohemia', was published in The Strand Magazine. To commemorate the 120 year anniversary of this event James Hodder examines the origin of the world's first consulting detective and his popularity with past and present generations.

Featuring interviews with notable Sherlockians, actors and authors, 'The Legacy of Sherlock Holmes' also includes guest appearances by Roger Llewellyn who has played the character in two acclaimed one-man shows written by David Stuart Davies.

The programme is narrated by Karl Carpani, with music from Kevin Macleod.
