Brad,
After spot checking a couple of episodes, I believe these are actually the Avengers shows from South Africa. The ones in the Avengers-South-Africa folder seem to be of superior sound quality. If I recall correctly, that collection was recently upgraded with better copies.

The collection in the BBC folder appears to include one episode not in South Africa folder: "The Cybernauts". This episode is not listed among the ones known to exist on the Avengers on Radio Web site, http://aor.theavengers.tv/freestuff_serials.htm. On closer examinatino, it turns out not to be an ultra rare missing episode, but merely one that is mislabeled. These radio shows are adapted from scripts used in the British TV show of the same name. The Avengers TV epsiode upon which this one is based is titled "The Cybernauts", so the mistake is understandable.

There is also one episode on which the title varies between the two collections. It's called "The Super Secret Cypher Snatch" in the BBC folder and "The Super Secret Cypher Caper" in the South Africa folder. According to the Avengers on Radio Web site, the correct title is "The Super Secret Cypher Snatch". The version in the BBC folder is missing the first and last installments, but the one in the South Africa folder is complete with all six installments.

Thanks for letting me know. I goofed that one Embarassed So we should keep "The Cybernauts" in the main folder and ditch the BBC folder? Or is "The Cybernauts" already in the main folder under a different name?

"The Cybernauts" is in the BBC folder. The same episode is called "A Deadly Gift" in the South Africa folder and that is correct title. As far as I can tell, the South Africa folder is complete with all of the known episodes in it. The only problem it has is that the "The Super Secret Cypher Caper" episode should be correctly titled "The Super Secret Cypher Snatch".

OK. I renamed them and got rid of the other folder in the BBC directory. Thanks for the info.
