BBC4 first broadcast May 28, 1999.
By Robin Brooks. When Richard Hannay signs up for a murder-mystery weekend based on `The Thirty-Nine Steps', he does not expect the drama to begin on his own doorstep.
With Alan Cox, Emily Woof and Nigel Cooke.
Director Clive Brill.
Robin Brooks has adapted and dramatised more than a dozen literary works as BBC dramas, including Rebecca West's "The Fountain Overflows", Jane Austen's early novel "Love and Friendship", Daphne du Maurier's "My Cousin Rachel", and C.S. Forester's Plain Murder.
You will enjoy this romp if you are _very_ familiar with Hitchcock's classic 1935 movie, "The 39 Steps", which he freely adapted from John Buchan's 1915 novel of the same name. It is a very clever and funny radio drama.
Highly recommended for those with a Hitchcock streak.
