Event Details

Music by Jonathan Dove

Story by Anthony Horowitz

Tom Redmond – presenter

Eduardo Portal – conductor


The biggest diamond in the world, once lurking in the stomach of a crocodile, is now on display in an amazing museum – surrounded by infra-red rays, rotating cameras and even lie-detectors. But a mysterious gang of thieves get past the high-tech security and, with the help of the beautiful Clara, distract the bird-watching security guard from Paris (a French Hornithologist, no less). Discover how our smart young heroine Rita attempts to foil their plot and brings a car chase to a rubbery end. And, if you listen really carefully, you might just uncover the true identity of the invisible gangmaster, The Wolf.
