4 Extra Debut. Stories inspired by the iconic film adaptation of L. Frank Baum's classic novel The Wizard of Oz. Read by Mark Heap.

Stories inspired by the iconic MGM film adaptation of L. Frank Baum’s classic novel The Wizard of Oz.

The Tin Man, Scarecrow, and Cowardly Lion's quest to find Brains, Heart and Courage have sparked three stories from Ian Sansom, Morwenna Banks and Colin Carberry.

You'll hear about people in unexpected situations, challenged to display qualities they never realized they had all along, or which find them looking at their lives in a new light in their own personal quests for a brain, a heart, and the nerve.

If I Only Had a Brain:

In the opening story, novelist and broadcaster Ian Sansom takes us into the daily routine of a scientist who in his quest for new discoveries rarely tells the people he meets exactly what his job entails.
