Part 5

I don't know how available this will be around the world or how long it will be available, but the BBC adaptations have been excellent in the past. I just wish they'd have thesense to release them on CD. :D

I've no idea I'm afraid. I haven't heard of that one. The BBC seem to broadcast these now and again, but I have no idea when and where. :D

According to Wikipedia, it was serialised on Woman's Hour.

Radio

Pratchett has had a number of radio adaptations on BBC Radio 4: The Colour of Magic, Equal Rites (on Woman's Hour), Only You Can Save Mankind, Guards! Guards!, Wyrd Sisters, Mort, and Small Gods have all been dramatised as serials, as was Night Watch in early 2008, and The Amazing Maurice and his Educated Rodents as a 90-minute play.[118]

Additionally, Guards! Guards! was also adapted as a one-hour audio drama by the Atlanta Radio Theatre Company and performed live at Dragon*Con in 2001.


This does seem to have been a dramatised version of the book, and possibly the first of the books to be dramatised. But it would have been a long time ago and I very much doubt that they ever repeated it. It doesn't seem to be in their archive. :(

I notice that the above list doesn't include the adaptation of 'Nation' that was on BBC Radio.
