With his black hat, huge umbrella, unworldly simplicity and 'beaming but breathless geniality', Father Brown is one of fiction's best-loved amateur detectives. Short and tatty, but with the wisdom and insight to unravel the most wayward of criminal minds, he has entertained generations. Here, the High Priest of detection becomes involved in four intriguing cases that will tax even his mental powers to the limit....

In the Blue Cross, the cream of London's police force and France's finest detective fail to apprehend Flambeau, the master of disguise. The suspect is a tall Catholic priest, but it's the little English priest who's behaving oddly...

The Queer Feet finds Father Brown investigating a death in a small hotel. Who stole the silver fish service? How many waiters are there? And how did all this lead to a glimmer of repentance?

In The Eye of Apollo, a villain turns detective, a new religion is proclaimed from a balcony, and Inspector Bagshaw is baffled. Only Father Brown can find the murderer. Finally, The Absence of Mr Glass turns on a blood-stained sword, a young man bound and gagged and a missing dandy. To solve the puzzle, Father Brown and Flambeau must track down the mysterious Mr Glass....

Andrew Sachs stars as the famous clerical sleuth in these four BBC Radio dramatisations.
