Just happened to see that the radioplay "Mauritius Command" is being repeated as a "Classic Serial" on BBC Radio 4. Part 1 is already online for "listening again" (part 1 will go offline in 4 days, all parts are online for 2 weeks I think).

Can be listened to from anywhere in the world and even recorded, if you use a program like No.23 recorder (shareware) or Audacity (freeware). Both grab the signal from your soundcard while the show is playing.

Bump. Because you only have 12 hours left now to listen to part 1.

Oops. Thanks for the reminder.

Thanks from me too, GFI!

I listened to part one last week and parts two and three yesterday. It seemed to be a bit more ambitious in form than the adaptation of HMS Surprise last year. I enjoyed it, but I suspect that someone who didn't already know the book quite well would be rather confused by the strategic situation and the non-linear timeline.

I will need to record part three these days, and then sit down on the long weekend to listen to all of it :-) (I have lined up a DVD of Jane Eyre (2006) and a radioplay of Mark Brandis as well)
