Last Seen Wearing Radio Dramatization.

I had uploaded this a while ago but due to a copyright issue over a piece of music used in the dramatisation the upload was banned worldwide. So, I have managed to edit the radio play to extract the offending music. Due to that the radio play may appear to end abruptly but their has been nothing lost other than the announcer reading the credits. There was also a 50 second scene where the music was playing on a radio in the background but the scene was not an important one and nothing of value was lost that would spoil the drama. I hope you all enjoy. The video can be found at the end of this post and of course can be found at my Youtube channel;

For my review of the TV adaption of Last Seen Wearing click here. An interesting fact about this radio drama is that the ending is different from that of the novel.

  1. I found it recently on the iphone podcasts app – just search ‘inspector morse’ – and yes it has the music etc.

    It’s REALLY good – I listened to it on a long walk by the sea – perfect place. It’s quite a bit different from the TV version, so don’t think ‘hey I already know the story’ – there are many similarities, including the names used, but it’s really well done and I recommend it.
