The award-winning His Dark Materials trilogy is a breathtaking epic adventure spanning a multitude of worlds.

Northern Lights, the opening instalment, sees Lyra and her shape-changing daemon embark on a dangerous quest.

In Oxford, Lyra learns that children are being kidnapped by the mysterious Gobblers.

When her friend Roger vanishes she determines to find him, and is given a powerful alethiometer which can reveal the truth in all things.

After discovering that the adults around her are not what they seem, Lyra and Pantalaimon join forces with a band of Gyptians.

Travelling north they encounter witch-queens and armoured bears, before being captured and taken to Bolvangar - where children are being used in terrible and secret experiments...Gripping, full of suspense and often funny, this BBC Radio 4 dramatisation has an all-star cast including Terence Stamp, Emma Fielding, Bill Paterson, Kenneth Cranham, and Ray Fearon. 2 CDs. 2 hrs 30 mins.
