Dick Barton – Special Agent is a hilarious homage to the daily radio serial from the 

1940s.  When Britain’s entire tea supply is threatened to be poisoned, our hero finds himself wrapped up in an adventure soaked with intrigue and mystery featuring all sorts of dastardly foes including temptress Marta Heartburn and the evil Baron Scarheart - all the while finding time to sing a few songs along the way.  Will Dick save the day and get home in time for supper? You’ll have to come and find out!
