The story of the notorious vampire Count Dracula, lord of the undead, who rises from his coffin at night to suck the blood of the living is, undoubtedly, the stuff of nightmares. A lunatic asylum, a bleak Transylvanian castle, an ancient cemetery...these are the dark backgrounds to the even darker deeds portrayed in this most bloodcurdling of tales.

Jan Needle has twice been shortlisted for the Medal. "I've always loved Dracula," he says. "I've tried to extract the brilliant core story from this complex book and glue young readers to their seats." Jan lives in Oldham. Gary Blythe's first children's picture book The Whales' Song (written by Dyan Sheldon), won the Kate Greenaway Medal. Dracula by Bram Stoker is his favourite book.From AudioFile:
The Golden Age of Canadian radio drama arose later than that in America and was led by one Edward Allan, director of this 1949 CBC adaptation of Bram Stoker's creep show, starring Lorne Greene as the count. Too corny to be frightening, the production is nonetheless great fun, far richer sonically and less conventional than stateside radio of the same era.
