    There are two listed films from the radio series.

    A Case for PC49 and one with Guardian Angel in the title.

    I can not track either down. Are they completely lost now?

    They're not lost Bernardo. I have them on a double bill dvd. From ebay about 5 years ago. Would be happy to oblige.

    Thanks Leonard, swap (I have got only run of the mill stuff) copy or purchase? Along with Dick Barton (DVD due any day now) and Journey into Space, PC49 was a mainstay of my boyhood radio listening and I am at the stage of my life where re-creating the past is a strong feature.

    No trouble at all. Just pm your details and I'll send you a copy. Also found MEET SEXTON BLAKE/THE ECHO MURDERS while looking for P.C.49, which I'd forgotten I had. Must organize...

    This was actually shown on the big screen during a recent Hammer convention (which sadly I missed). I wonder why DDHE did not release it to DVD during their run of early Hammer titles.

    I'd love to go to a Hammer convention - could you supply a link to whoever organises them?

    If you like the PC 49 films, you will LOVE the Dick Barton Trilogy. All three films are availble on DVD.



    The first, Dick Barton Special Agent, has to be one of the best british B films ever made. It is a classic.



    The films by the way as you most probably already know were made by the same studio..... Hammer

    They are not pristine, but certainly watchable.



    I reviewed the whole set with more detailed DVD quality information: Dick Barton Collection.

    I bought the three-DVD collection last year. Quality is fine and it is pure nostalgia.



    The fight scenes are a little amateurish, but if you remember that these films were produced over 50 years ago and recall how you enjoyed them at the time, you'll enjoy them all over again.



    Sites such as play.com and blah.com usually do them at decent prices with free delivery. You may find them on e-bay even cheaper.
