..... the dramatised story of the loss of the submarine HMS Thetis in Liverpool Bay on 1 June, 1939, which cost 99 lives. Written by Fred Lawless. Broadcast R4 Saturday 27 September, 1430 hrs. From what I heard, I can say that this represents the very best of radio, engaging the imagination and emotions. A truly horrifying story, splendidly acted by a first-rate cast. Recommended most enthusiastically to anyone with the remotest interest in good radio; dedicated to the memory of those who died. ....Roger Bickerton, VRPCC newsletter
