Description

Odyssey seems full of change these days as Tom Riley runs for mayor, George Barclay and his family discover the difficulties of preparing for the ministry, Jason Whittaker arrives amidst international intrigue and Jack uncovers a strange code book in Whit's workshop.

Some new folks have moved into town, and others are finding themselves in situations they couldn’t have imagined in their wildest dreams. So, come on along and check out the latest in the most exciting neighborhood around!

Bonus Features

There are no extra features on this album, but the episodes do feature a total of 4 minutes, 31 seconds of extra scenes that had to be deleted from the original broadcast versions in order to keep them at the appropriate time for the radio.
