The Speckled Band

The amount of material from the Sherlock Holmes Collections on the U Media Archive site continues to grow. We now have, at the end of this week, over 400 items from the Collections uploaded for viewing and listening.

One of the latest additions to the site is a recording of a production of a radio drama, from a script by Edith Meiser, of the Sherlock Holmes story "The Adventure of the Speckled Band." The radio drama was performed at the University of Minnesota with Don Shelby as Holmes, Dave Moore as Doctor John Watson, Colleen Needles as Helen Stoner, and Tom Hanneman as Dr. Grimesby Roylott. The production is introduced by E. W. McDiarmid, former University Librarian and member of the Norwegian Explorers with comments by Edith Meiser, who attended the performance. The performance is from July 13, 1983 and lasts about 53 minutes. Enjoy!
