Originally broadcast nationwide in 1993, this meticulously researched five-part historical radio drama is being published to commemorate Benjamin Franklin's 300th birthday. It reveals the multifaceted, complex Franklin's little known adventures in London before the Revolution. For 15 years, he lived on Craven Street off the Thames, where he established a surrogate family, began his autobiography, and became America's most famous citizen. As tensions heated up between the Mother Country and her colonies, Franklin became embroiled in intrigue, espionage, and even a duel. The British government believed him the head of all the rebels and set out to have him hanged. He escaped only hours before arresting magistrates came banging on his door. He was at sea sailing for home when the shot heard 'round the world rang out at Lexington.

The cast includes George Grizzard, Elizabeth Montgomery, and Sir Nigel Hawthorne.

    " Solid voice acting and high production value aren't enough to inject life into this meticulously researched but uninspired look at Ben Franklin's London years. "
