Secret Agent X-9 (1945)
This week, a dramatization of Secret Agent X-9—originally a comic-strip collaboration between Dashiell Hammett and artist Alex Raymond— airs on BBC Radio 4 Extra, starring Connie Booth. Episodes usually may be heard for up to a week after broadcast.

In Continental Op news, Hammett's Red Harvest was selected as part of the Library of Congress' "Books That Shaped America" exhibition.

Will that be one episode (of 4) of X-9 per week?

All 4 episodes running this week, Evan, although you should be able to listen to them online for up to a week after broadcast.
