Publisher Description

This work features two stand-alone BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramas adapted by Alexander McCall Smith from his much-loved series. 'Must-listen...beautifully cast, precisely timed, simply wonderful' - “Daily Telegraph”. Warm, humorous and uplifting, Alexander McCall Smith's hugely popular novels featuring Precious Ramotswe, proprietor of Botswana's only female private detective agency, have become international bestsellers, sold over seven million copies, and been translated into 26 languages. These acclaimed productions, complete with vibrant music, bring the exotic world of the books vividly to life. “The Kalahari Typing School for Men” opens with bad news for Mma Ramotswe - her agency has competition in the form of the Satisfaction Guaranteed Detective Agency, run by a man. Mma Makutsi has entrepreneurial ambitions too, and has conceived the idea of teaching an evening class where men could learn to type. “The Admirer” sees Mma Ramotswe commissioned by a physiotherapist to find out what her errant husband is up to. There are also problems at home: one of her foster children, Motheleli, is unhappy, and Mr J. L. B. Matekoni is still reluctant to talk about marriage.
Mma Makutsi, however, has found a boyfriend...Starring Claire Benedict as Mma Ramotswe and Joseph Marcell as Mr J. L. B. Matekoni, these dramatisations are guaranteed to appeal to all fans of the engaging lady detective.
