Publisher's Summary

A collection of the full-cast BBC Radio dramatisations of novels by Terry Pratchett.

Somewhere on the frontier between thought and reality exists the Discworld, a parallel time and place which might sound and smell very much like our own, but which looks completely different....

Published for the very first time are seven full-cast BBC Radio dramatisations of Terry Pratchett’s novels, with star-studded casts including Martin Jarvis, Sheila Hancock, Anton Lesser, Philip Jackson, Alex Jennings and Mark Heap.

Mort

Hopeless young peasant Mort is hired as an apprentice to Death. He'll have free board, use of the company horse and being dead isn’t even compulsory. In fact, it's a dream job - until he discovers that it can be killer for his love life....

Wyrd Sisters

Three witches meet on a blasted heath. A king is cruelly murdered. A child heir and the kingdom’s crown are both missing. But Granny Weatherwax finds that meddling in royal politics is a lot more complicated than certain playwrights would have you believe....

Guards! Guards!

In Ankh-Morpork, the Haves and the Have-Nots are about fall out. Again. The Night Watch’s Captain Vimes is used to this but when the Have-Nots find the key to a lethal, dormant weapon that even they don’t understand, he knows it’s time so sober up. 

Eric

When precocious young Eric Thursley summons a demon from the loathsome pit to fulfil his every wish, he wants what everyone wants – immortality, to rule the world and have the most beautiful woman love him. Instead he gets Rincewind, the Disc’s most incompetent wizard. 

Small Gods

On the Discworld, Gods are as numerous as herring roe, all elbowing for space at the top. In such a competitive environment, you need an acolyte and fast. For the Great God Om, Brutha is the Chosen One, or at least the only One available....

Night Watch

Living in the past is hard. Dying in the past is incredibly easy, especially when there is a serial killer on the loose who targets coppers. Commander Sam Vimes of the City Watch is back in his own rough, tough past and he has a job to do.

Bonus Story

In addition to these Discworld novels, this collection also includes a full-cast dramatisation of Only You Can Save Mankind, from the Johnny Maxwell series. As an alien fleet crosses his computer screen, Johnny prepares to blow the ScreeWee into a million pieces....

Good value

Some of the adaptations are better than others but all worth a listen, none of them poor. Performances are all up there. Given the number of tales, definitely some value here.

Loved it!

This was my first experience of Discworld, and I'm so in love with Pratchett's tales. My only regret: I wish I had read the novels, rather than the abridged dramatisations. That said, fantastic download - good voice acting, keeps you listening and easy to follow stories.

Fun Short Dramatization collection

Whilst the stories by necessity were cut a bit short in places for the BBC dramatizations this is a fun, enjoyable collection of several of Terry Pratchett's most memorable books well performed by varying casts

Wonderful!

It is laugh-aloud funny. The BBC does this sooo well. A joy to listen to, just a risk that you won't want to "put the book down"

Thoroughly enjoyable. BBC has not let itself down

Thoroughly enjoyable. BBC has not let itself down. Forget they're abridged versions. Immerse yourself in smooth flowing theatre - disc world style.

More like a series of Radio Plays than an audio book reading.

An interesting take. Reminds me of the radio plays that had me captivated as a child. For Pratchett fans who have read all of these stories it is a delightful way to revisit them albeit in highly abridged form. If your new to Pratchett’s works I suggest going for one of the unabridged narrations first.
