RE: any problems with the link

no problems, but I have securityware, malwarebytes, and redundancy in ad' blockers and firewalls. Sometimes amazing I can download anything. I used firefox browser.

The audio level and quality was good, no dropouts. No warnings.

Didn't try using MSIE as I'd certainly had problem at Sendspace, Zippyshare et. al. file share site.

I think MacLean's last two books were an improvement. Sure, they are never going to be the equal of something like Where Eagles Dare, but they were a long way better than the likes of Floodgate. I think it helped that they were set on board ships.

Santorini does have some boring talkie bits - mainly the White House sequences. It would have been more interesting if he'd shown the FBI investigations on the page. But the tension of the bomb on the sea floor holds my attention enough.

San Andreas - which I'm currently listening to - is perhaps closer to "classic MacLean" in that there's a strong mystery element, the question of why the enemy are taking such an interest in that particular vessel. It's very often the why, rather than the what, that is the real mystery with MacLean. The Satan Bug and Where Eagles Dare are good examples here.

As for Partisans, which I was copying at the weekend, it had potential - and the sequence on the boat is very good. Unfortunately the way things got resolved was a letdown. Basically it took seven out of the nine chapters to get to where The Last Frontier had got to by about chapter three (of about fifteen or so, I forget exactly). And he basically had all the exciting stuff happen off page. Or start the action scene then cut away quickly to something else.

Notable fact about Partisans, it's the only MacLean title to feature no fatalities.

But it could probably still be turned into a decent movie. Most of his titles had movie potential, even some of the lesser ones. Goodbye California is a tough, boring read, but it still has the air of something that could be turned into a great movie. I think I'd draw the line at Floodgate though.

Seawitch - I'm guessing the Nigel Graham reading you mentioned is the other one I have, downloaded in 2012 as part of what I have termed the "standard set" which includes a mixture of Chivers, RNIB and old-style readings. I think Peter Wickham's reading is better but it's been a while since I heard either one. It's not one of the better books in the series. It had plenty of action, but no interesting characters. The blurb on the back of the book implies Cronkite is the hero and Lord Worth the villain, and it might have worked better that way, but he set up the oil barons at the start as the bad guys hiring Cronkite to take down Lord Worth's eponymous oil rig, and brought in those two PI's who were friends of Lord Worth to make it clear who the goodies and baddies were.


As for the question of "would splitting it into chapters rather than cassette sides be more in-keeping with the author's original intent" - I do agree entirely. When I assembled Santorini and Breakheart Pass from the 10min chunks that I found them in on download, I didn't bother looking for the jump in sound levels, I just assembled them into chapters.

An interesting ranking Liam, thanks.

I'd recently listened to Partisans from Bob the Pig's archive, as
discovered a while ago by by THEREALLINK. You're right, despite
Francis Matthews best efforts, the book is a washout. I'm interested
to see you've put Santorini and San Andreas, his final 2 books quite
high in your ranking. A relative return to form before his death?
Bob's archive also contains the Oasis version of Maydon's San Andreas
and Seawitch read by Nigel Graham (which to my ears seems to be
in the "correct" format TITLE by Alistair MacLean READ BY narrator!)

To my mind, the audios split into Chapters rather than Cassette sides
are closer "in spirit" to the original books. No?
Wed 10th Jan 2018 21:33

Liam
Actually, while I'm on the subject, here's my approximate ranking of MacLean's novels. It's very approximate, it's very difficult to say which I prefer in the middle of the table, and even the top seven or eight could be mixed up a bit depending on my mood.

1: Night Without End
2: Ice Station Zebra
3: The Guns Of Navarone
4: Where Eagles Dare
5: HMS Ulysses
6: The Dark Crusader
7: The Golden Randezvous

8: South By Java Head
9: The Satan Bug
10: Puppet On A Chain
11: When Eight Bells Toll
12: Caravan To Vaccares
13: Force Ten From Navarone
14: The Golden Gate

15: Santorini
16: Bear Island
17: Fear Is The Key
18: The Last Frontier
19: Breakheart Pass
20: San Andreas
21: Athabasca

22: Seawitch
23: Circus
24: The Way To Dusty Death
25: Partisans
26: River Of Death
27: Goodbye California
28: Floodgate
Wed 10th Jan 2018 20:29

Liam
Grey Aubrey - there was indeed an mp3 CD containing Partisans, Force Ten From Navarone and The Golden Gate. All of them are split into chapters rather than sides. I can upload the alternate versions of all three for comparison if you like.

Actually, while I'm at it, I might as well find the RNIB reading of Floodgate read by Alexander Johns, it's the only one I have copies of both versions, RNIB and Chivers, that are formally identified as such. I sort of wish I had a better book to offer the comparison with, because of the 28 novels MacLean wrote, I wouldn't hesitate to put Floodgate at 28! Actually, come to think of it, I think I remember preferring Alexander Johns' RNIB version to Sean Barrett's reading for Chivers. Whether that's just because the Barrett one was more of a chore in that I had to copy the tapes for myself, I don't know. But I do remember thinking Johns was doing the best he could with a bad book.

Radiohug - yes, Francis Matthews was a good reader.

I'm finally having a second listen to Alistair Maydon's reading of San Andreas. After our combined effort have yielded no sign of a Chivers reading, my presumption that his reading was "the wrong one", based on the RNIB intro, has been looking more like a wild goose chase, so I figured I ought to listen again.

Maydon's style of reading is a little different, it still feels like he's going for precision rather than atmosphere. He's also not the best at doing the different character voices/accents. You have to pay attention. Still, he's no worse than Simon Ward reading Circus, and at least San Andreas is a better book than Circus.

Just finished copying Partisans. The mp3s can be found at

MF/?q7ijbas2eact9

There were a few moments where the cassette just stopped and I had to wind the tape back a bit and start again, and then edit out the duplication. This happened on sides 6 and 11. Technically it had a stopping incident on side 10 as well but it was after the "end of side" announcement so I didn't realise until I had taken the tape out!

What was a little more serious was right at the end of the final side, in the last couple of minutes, there's bits where it has a wobble and slows down. Fortunately it doesn't lose anything of importance.

As for the book itself, well, it's not one of MacLean's best, out of his 28 books I'd rank it about 23 or 24. But I can't fault Francis Matthews as a reader. He read seven of MacLean's books in this series, more than twice as many as anyone else (Steven Pacey read both Navarone books and Where Eagles Dare, Peter Wickham read The Dark Crusader and Seawitch, nobody else read more than one).

Reflecting more on that MacLean documentary, I find myself thinking about his critical attitude towards Ian Fleming as a writer - and, having read a couple of the Bond novels, I have to agree, Fleming's writing was not great. But someone obviously felt that the concept would work cinematically, and it did. Sometimes. The Bond films are hit and miss!

Glad to hear it works, thanks for responding.

Your welcome.
I had an infrequent urge to to something.
Usually I sit firmly upon my fundament until the urge dissipates.
I was therefore in fortunate circumstance of being wedged into chair and yet positioned to download, spot verify and affirm Just William audios.

RE: Latest episodes of Just William narrated before an audience by Martin Jarvis:

a bit tricky to remove spaces in url.
Selecting individual folder / file easy, and execution of download taken over by firefox extension.
all done without stress [as was once with mediafire].
Random tests had no faults with audio.
Will be fine listening.

Same url at zippyshare both being Count Arthur Strong.

In partly related subject, Zippyshare ad's and other pestiferous invasive bugware bollixed Microsoft and Firefox browsers [e.g. bitcoin miner Trojan was blocked by ESET security, hi-jacking of pc use required i crash it]. I switched to the Private Browsing by Portable App's version of Firefox.
No Zippyshare pop-ups/pop-unders/redirects [Ublock Origin stopping more than Adblock]. CPU hasn't shown excessive activity [when try using non-portable Firefox Private. task manager shows 6 Gb+ memory used, 99% CPU usage, and virtual memory keeps increasing.]

I would second Denis' request for a complete recording of ISIRTA S07 ESP A Christmas Carrot, billed on iPlayer as The Wonder Show Christmas Edition. Alas, I doubt there exists a longer version than the one last broadcast in February 2010 (my copy is a measly 25.22 minutes).

What are the chances there is a full-length copy restored by Keith Wickham lying forgotten in a BBC cupboard, along with his unbroadcast versions of Lines From My Grandfather's Forehead and other gems?
