Opening with the joyous strains of Botswana children singing, this production never ceases to sound high-spirited and joyful. Voicing Detective Mma Precious Ramotswe's lilting rhythms and down-to-earth observations, British theater stalwart Claire Benedict leads the expert cast in performing these first eight episodes of BBC Radio's 2004-2005 audio-theater adaptations, written by McCall Smith himself. Whether Mma Ramotswe is tracking down lost relations, debunking a local witch doctor, or teaching typing to fumble-fingered men (one of the silliest sound effects ever created for radio), these programs subtly introduce the listener to Botswana's culture while creating bright, unforgettable characters. Touching, rhythmic, and laugh-out-loud hilarious, these world-renowned stories are sure to delight listeners of all ages. B.P.
