- Great Explorers
by David Angus (Author), Kerry Shale (Narrator), Dam Dastor (Narrator), Francis Jeater (Narrator)
Here are the stories of nine great adventures and the lives of the men who took part in them. They pushed back the frontiers of man’s knowledge of the world by their vision, courage and sheer doggedness. They were very different people – from bold adventurers facing the unknown with enjoyment to careful, more scientific individuals. Their journeys are placed within their historical context, but also contain the words of the men themselves.
- Great Inventors and Their Inventions: Gutenberg - Bell - Marconi - the Wright Brothers
by David Angus (Author), Benjamin Soames (Narrator)
Nine remarkable men produced inventions that changed the world. The printing press, the telephone, powered flight, recording and others have made the modern world what it is. But who were the men who had these ideas and made reality of them? As David Angus shows, they were very different – quiet, boisterous, confident, withdrawn – but all had a moment of vision allied to single-minded determination to battle through numerous prototypes and produced something that really worked.
- Great Scientists and Their Discoveries
by David Angus (Author), Clare Corbett (Narrator), Benjamin Soames (Narrator)

- Tales from the Greek Legends
by Edward Ferrie
The great myths of Ancient Greece have inspired mankind for centuries. Each of the heroes has to undergo trials of strength and courage to prove his valour against a host of monsters – the Minotaur, half man, half bull; Hydra, the many-headed serpent; Medusa the Gorgon. Meanwhile, the gods, lead by Zeus the Thunderer from his seat on Mount Olympus, watch, encourage, help – and sometimes hinder.
In this new retelling, the tales come alive more vividly than ever with the added drama of popular music by Holst, Wagner and others.
- The Junior Homer Box Set
by Benedict Flynn (Author), Benjamin Soames (Narrator)
The Tale of Troy
There was once a time, nearly four thousand years ago, when the tall towers of a city called Troy reached gleaming into the sky; when its proud king fought against an invading army in a desperate siege. The Tale of Troy was so important to the ancient Greeks that its author, Homer, became a kind of hero. Long after his death artists, thinkers and ordinary people still look to his tale for inspiration. This exciting version of the famous story is retold especially for eight- to thirteen-year-olds.
The Adventures of Odysseus
The Adventures of Odysseus is the story of what happened after the Trojan War when Odysseus, the most cunning of all the Greek heroes, left Troy and made his way back to his wife Penelope and his son Telemachus. It was first told by a poet named Homer nearly three thousand years ago and is retold in this new version especially for younger listeners.
