Product description

A breathtaking epic, the award-winning His Dark Materials trilogy spans a multitude of worlds. The opening instalment Northern Lights is set in a parallel world like, yet very unlike, our own. Twelve-year-old Lyra, whose daemon Pantalaimon is part of her very self, is growing up in an ancient, ritual-haunted Oxford. She becomes involved in a quest to find her father and rescue her friend Roger from evil kidnappers, aided by armoured bears, Gyptians and a witch-queen. The second instalment, The Subtle Knife, introduces us to Will Parry - a young boy with a dangerous mission to fulfil. When he and Lyra cross paths, they decide to help each other, but the world of Cittagazze is a strange and unsettling place, where deadly soul-eating Spectres roam...The concluding instalment, The Amber Spyglass, brings the saga to a thrilling close. Lyra and Will are aided by friends old and new as they continue their perilous journey. As childhood slips away, they face further dangers - including a terrifying voyage to the world of the dead. Mixing science, theology and magic to fantastic and exciting effect, Pullman's gripping trilogy was an international bestseller, and these thrilling full-cast dramatisations bring Philip Pullman's masterpiece to vivid life. 6 CDs. 7 hrs 30 mins.

Review quote

"I'm delighted that His Dark Materials is being done on the radio. I've always loved radio drama - it can move from the epic to the intimate in a moment. The sweep of the whole thing seems to have been very well maintained; and the cast is great, especially the two leads, Lulu and Daniel. The makers have used all the resources of my favourite medium to create a vivid and atmospheric production." -- Philip Pullman BBC press release "The impressive cast includes Terence Stamp and Ray Fearon. Lulu Popplewell as Lyra is consistently strong" -- Kim Bunce The Observer
