The Price of Fear was a horror/mystery radio serial produced by BBC Radio during 1973, 74 & 83. The host and star of the show was Vincent Price. This show stands out in Price's radio career as some of the episodes are based on fictional adventures of Vincent Price himself, in which Price plays himself, while others have him merely introducing the macabre tale of the week. Twenty-two episodes were produced. Writing credits for the series include William Ingram, Stanley Ellin, Richard Davis,...

For three decades, Rupert Hardacre was one of the big beasts of advertising, the self-proclaimed "British David Ogilvy". He worked hard, played hard, and lived hard. But he fell harder... Driven out of every reputable agency in town for drinking all their whiskey and sleeping with all their wives, he used the remains of his fortune to found Hardacre's, the best (and only) advertising agency on the M25. Now he's so confident that his name alone will take him back to the top, he's happy...

This Panel show, hosted by David Mitchell, sees four players each giving a lecture on a subject - with the majority of their speeches consisting of fabricated lies. However, each contestant must attempt to smuggle five strange-but-true facts past the rest of the panel, hoping that no-one will notice what they have said is the unbelievable truth.

Set in a small airline business, Cabin Pressure is a comedy about the wing and a prayer world of a tiny, one-plane charter airline staffed by two pilots - one on his way down, and one who was never up to start with. Whether they're flying squaddies to Hamburg, metal sheets to Mozambique, transporting lads on a stag night or shifting a panther for the odd oil sheik, no job is too small - but many jobs prove to be too difficult - for MJN Air!

The League of Gentlemen , reunited for the purposes of a paranormal investigation. You know where you are with the League: their tone is never anything other than completely sick. They gathered at the Ancient Ram inn in Gloucestershire, supposedly the most haunted place in Britain, and were unfailingly polite, even when faced with the inn's crazed owner, John Humphries (he shares his home with a succubus, an incubus and, erm, a collection of cuddly toys).
