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. 1. Language: English.
