Captain Richard Barton made his radio debut in 1946 and quickly went on to become Britain's most popular hero. For years the nation tuned in to hear the famous tune, Devil's Gallop, herald another cliff-hanging adventure for the smooth, crime busting Barton and his friends Snowey and Jock. In 1972, as part of the BBC's Golden Jubilee celebrations, the team came together once more to re-record the very first adventure. The episodes were not stored in the BBC Archives but, thanks to private tapes, these "lost" recordings can be heard once more. And here they are, in the fast-moving story about a stolen secret weapon, complete with dark caves, deadly spiders, lifts with no floors and - most intriguingly - a tall and mysterious man in a black Homburg.
