Does anyone have My uncle Silas by H.E Bates read by David Neal that they could upload please? It was on regularly in the days of BBC 7 but I failed to take the opportunity to record it😩. Now it never seems to be on anymore. Someone has kindly uploaded some of “More sugar for the horse” and “ Country stories” H.E Bates read by David Neal but not My uncle Silas so far. I would be very grateful if someone has this and could upload it.

It's a bit late in the day but I think that this may be what you ere looking for. An absolutely wonderful reading by David Neal. It took me a long time to find it.
I am not sure how you will find it as I am not too experienced at uploading files. Try H E Bates or My Uncle Silas, or read by David Neal.

Hello Radioforce,

Thanks for uploading the Uncle Silas audio files.

Can I draw your attention to the fact that 4 of those that are labelled Freecorder are corrupted and seem to be mostly hiss! Perhaps you could re-upload these at some stage.

Also may I be so bold as to help you relabel these correctly.
There are two different BBC programmes in this set.
A. Sugar for the Horse series (Uncle Silas stories)
B. Three Country Stories series (non-Uncle Silas stories)

so the fifteen items in the upload break down as follows
Item No.1 = Three Country Stories - Time
Item No.2 = Three Country Stories - The Cowslip Field
Item No.3 = Three Country Stories - The Maker of Coffins
Item No.4 = Three Country Stories - Chaff in the Wind
Item No.5 = Three Country Stories - Great Uncle Crow
Item No.6 = Three Country Stories - Loss of Pride
Item No.7 = Three Country Stories - The Maker of Coffins (again!)
Item No.8 = Sugar for the Horse - CORRUPTED
Item No.9 = Three Country Stories - Chaff in the Wind (again)
Item No.10 = Sugar for the Horse - CORRUPTED
Item No.11 = Sugar for the Horse - CORRUPTED
Item No.12 = Three Country Stories - The Cowslip Field (again!)
Item No.13 = Sugar for the Horse - CORRUPTED
Item No.14 = Three Country Stories - The Widder CORRUPTED
Item No.15 = Three Country Stories - The Widder

Thanks.

Thanks for your reply.
"This may be what you are looking for...it took me a long time to find it" could you please tell me where you found it or better still include a link?

Hi there

I have uploaded all of the "My Uncle Silas" that I have.

Originally I digitized the BBC cassette tapes and those that I uploaded the first time. As to my latest upload, frankly I don't know where they came from. Possibly I recorded them from the radio.

I can't believe that that there are any more to find but if you manage to then please let me know. They are beautifully read.
