Michael Redgrave played Horatio Hornbloweyr, a captain in the British Royal Navy during the Napoleonic era. The radio series was based on twelve Horatio Hornblower novels written by C.S. Forester. These novels were, and still are, well liked due to their realistic tone and historical accuracy in telling the tales of Naval life in the late 1700s through the mid 1800s. C.S. Forester was well known for his novels about military and naval life, including such fine titles as The African Queen, The Gun, The Barbary Pirates, and The General.

This series was produced all at once in England in 1952, then broadcast three times by CBS in 1953, ABC in 1954 and Mutual in 1957

    I love Horatio stories and have a lot of videos of his adventures also .I have been a customer of OTRCAT for a long to time and have enjoyed everything I ever bought. I am 83 years old so really like oldtime radio

    I have really enjoyed them. I transmit them over AM to my vintage radios throughout my house and the static in the background reminds me of child hood times sitting around a radio and all of the background noise that was always there and we just lived with it and thought it was normal. Ken

    I have yet to see a better collection of variety of old time radio shows (not that i go anywhere else to look.. i have been very happy here at otrcat for YEARS!!!) the prices are very reasonable. and you have always been polite and helpful and a pleasure to contact in this age of pushing out quantity and forget the quality or the customer. i have never had a person contact me personally to see how things are going or hey this update is available or just saying hi. i will always remember early on jon emailed me on something i dont remember what it was now but i do remember being surprised and a little suspicouse at first cuz you always hear stories about people you dont know contacting you. but it did not take long to realize he really all right and cared about what he was doing. And i suspect he has good people helping him... good job to you all! sorry if i got long winded. -ed-
