A. J. Raffles, gentleman, brilliant amateur player and thief, was created in 1898 by E. W. Hornug, brother-in-law of Sherlock Holmes creator Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Like his Baker Street cousin, Raffles has enjoyed a long history in print, on the stage, in film, television and radio. He is possibly one of the original anti-heroes, long before the term existed. However, though a thief, he is not a villain. But, then again, he’s not Robin Hood either. You decide as you listen to his adventures in the England of a fondly remembered bygone age.
