All 19 (and a half!) surviving Avengers radio serials
have been painstakingly restored (twice!) by the webmasters of The Avengers Declassified
over a ten year period. These serials are not currently available from
The Avengers Declassified, but if you
drop us a line and ask nicely, we'll see what can be done.

Original Springbok Radio Announcement
Taken from John Wright's tape of Episode
Five of The Joker, this is
the only introductory Springbok Radio announcement that exists on any Avengers
The Great Gong Robbery: The Avengers
This was a forty-minute comedy devised
and written by Donald Monat and June Dixon to mark the Silver Jubilee of
Springbok Radio. The programme was broadcast live from the SABC Variety
Theatre in Broadcast House, Johannesburg on 30th April 1975. The Great
Gong Robbery was produced by Donald Monat and the excerpt here
comprises the Avengers section of the broadcast. It features Donald
Monat and Diane Appleby reprising their original roles and fellow radio
Avengers actor Hal Orlandini as an Afrikaner policeman.
