Beric The Briton ~ History Brought to Life {Crew Review}

Do you love action? What about adventure? Do you like history?  Have you heard of Heirloom Audio Productions? Heirloom Audio brings history to life with their radio theater adaptations of G.A. Henty novels. The latest adventure, Beric The Briton, has become a well loved CD here at my house!


Beric The Briton Heirloom Audio Productions  Review

About Heirloom Audio Productions


Heirloom Audio produces radio theater quality dramas. Each production is based on a G.A. Henty novel. These are not Henty novels read aloud. It isn't an audiobook; it is cinema for your ears.  These adaptations bring history to life by combining sound effects, music, and talented actors to voice the characters.



Beric The Briton



This is the story of a young chieftain named Beric who has an adventure that takes him to Rome during the reign of Nero in the time frame of Rome burning. Beric learns of Christus and the Christian faith.  He trains as a gladiator, fights a lion, serves Nero and becomes a Christian.

Disk 1 of the 2 disk set, takes place in Briton.  Beric and the Britons fight the Romans.  They are captured and taken to Rome.  Disk 2 takes us to Rome and we are introduced to the Christians.

My favorite line from the audio drama also happens to be the quote used for the Inspirational Quote Poster, one of the digital bonus items, I received.  Julius, a Roman Christian, stands before Nero and refuses to deny Christ.  Julius states "I will gladly die for Him who died for me."

Bonus Items 


Review Crew members received access to several digital bonus items including a full color study guide! The Study Guide is beautiful. In addition to the sections for each track of the story, there are short biographies of three important people to the story, background information, and engaging activities that include recipes or fun facts! At the back of the study guide you will find three different Bible study options. For each audio track there are a set of questions.  Each set of questions includes 3 parts: Listening Well, Thinking Further, and Defining Words.

In addition to the Study Guide and Inspirational Quote Poster, we received an MP3 recording of Beric The Briton, a Cast Poster, a PDF version of the actual G. A. Henty novel, MP3 of the beautiful soundtrack and more!

My Thoughts


This is my favorite so far of the Audio Adventures we've listened to.  I loved hearing Tom Baker voice Askar.

If you are studying Ancient history,  British History, or Church History, I highly recommend adding Beric the Briton to your list of historical fiction to include.

Studying a different time period?  Currently there are 5 titles available!  I know there are more titles coming.
