VV341 - The Valley of Fear
Barry Foster & David Buck (1978)
A BBC full dramatisation - starring Barry Foster as Sherlock Holmes & David Buck as Dr John H Watson.
The music used at the beginning and end of each program was Saint-SaŽns's "Danse Macabre,"
recorded by James Davies. (The same music was used recently for the "Jonathan Creek" BBC-TV Series).
13 Episodes were recorded at the BBC's Birmingham Studio's in Stereo, as follows:-

I have found a recording of all 13 episodes.
(Those highlighted in BOLD RED are in full STEREO.)
I do have a recording of "The Red Headed League", but it is of poor quality
I would like to find a good recording of "The Red Headed League"
I would also like to find quality STEREO recordings of the stories above not highlighted in RED
