Two stand-alone BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramas adapted by Alexander McCall Smith from his much-loved series

Warm, humorous and uplifting, Alexander McCall Smith's hugely popular novels featuring Precious Ramotswe, proprietor of Botswana's only female private detective agency, have become international bestsellers, sold over seven million copies, and been translated into 26 languages. These acclaimed productions, complete with vibrant music, bring the exotic world of the books vividly to life.

The Chief Justice of Beauty finds the ladies hired by a beauty contest judge to check up on the integrity of the finalists in a forthcoming competition, following the embarrassing arrest for shoplifting of a previous winner. Meanwhile, Mma Ramotsweis worried about her fiancé, Mr J. L. B. Matekoni.

The Confession sees Mma Ramotswe consulting her best friend Mma Potokwane, the matron at the orphanage, to ask for help in dealing with Mr J. L. B. Matekoni. She also has a new client—Mr Molefelo, a man with a shameful past who wants Mma Ramotswe to find the two women he has wronged and ask them to forgive him.

Starring Claire Benedict as Mma Ramotswe and Nadine Marshall as Mma Makutsi, these dramatisations are guaranteed to appeal to all fans of the engaging lady detective.
