Agatha Christie BBC Dramatizations

Does anyone listen to the BBC Dramatizations that they have adapted from her books? If so, which ones are your favorites? One thing that I noticed is that the programs are very faithful to the books. The adaptations that I have listened to thus far were Death On The Nile, Murder On The Orient Express, and Lord Edgware Dies which all had John Moffatt as Poirot -- a very good Poirot on radio I must say too! I'm currently listening to A Murder Is Announced and so far it's a very good adaptation and I'm really enjoying it. Love the cast members and again it's faithful to the book.

There are also some radio dramatizations (https://www.penguinrandomhouse.co.uk/media/news/2015/september/agatha-christie--the-lost-plays/) that has just been unearthed and rediscovered. I definitely plan on buying these soon. The stories are: Butter In a Lordly Dish, Murder In The Mews, and Personal Call. I'm really looking forward to Personal Call. I listened to a preview of it and it's definitely got my attention. I hope we hear of some more unearthed material in the nearby future.

    I have a Collection of Audio Cassettes of Agatha Christie Books, All The Miss Marple's, and a few of The Poirots these are Dramatizations, The Majority of them are very good, even though they are Abridged, I also have Hugh Frazer Reading some Poirots and Samantha Bond reading The Tommy and Tuppence's and Jane Funnel reading WDTAE, I wish I had them all Unabridged and I wish I had the ones Stephanie Cole Narrates, I also have The 13 Problems on 3 lots read by Joan Hickson.
