Publisher's Summary

Charles Chilton's classic science-fiction trilogy stormed the BBC airwaves during the 1950s. Its gripping story lines, extra-terrestrial sound effects, and atmospheric music engaged listeners as never before. Between 1953 and 1958, a devoted audience of adults and children attentively followed Captain Jet Morgan and his crew from one cliff-hanger to another as, together, they faced the unknown perils of space.

Well Worth It Despite A Slow Start...

Any additional comments?

I've been a fan of old radio shows for many years now but this is the first series I have encountered that is structured in a serial format in which each episode plays off of the previous one's ending.
What results, is one long, 7-hour radio play. This may sound unappealing to those who lack an imagination, but - for those lucky enough to be endowed with a healthy one - it is pure gold.
I am a huge fan of the 50's radio program "X-Minus One", but each half hour episode can only pack in so much detail. Journey Into Space has the luxury of time which allows it to go into brilliant sci-fi detail as I've never heard before. The first two episodes are a little slow and boring considering that human beings have since already landed on the lunar surface, so it's hard to peak your interest. But trust me, if you stay with it...It gets INSANE.....
