Exclusive! James Herriot Narrated Audio Books

Alf Wight FRCVS OBE, under his pen name of James Herriot, delighted readers worldwide with his gentle autobiographical tales of life as a country vet in North Yorkshire. His stories tell us of a time now gone by, but which has been immortalised for future generations in his writings, films and the TV series, All Creatures Great and Small.

There have been many Audio CDs of the Herriot books produced over the years with different narrators. The original recordings of the first 4 books, however, were on cassettes, almost 40 years ago, and they were narrated by the author. These were the only recordings ever made of Alf Wight reading his own books.

It’s the perfect antidote for these difficult times during the coronavirus crisis and a reminder of the values of that bygone era.
