A brand new BBC Radio 4 sequel to Charles Chilton's iconic radio sci-fi series between 1953 and 1958, Journey Into Space attracted millions of listeners, gripped by the mystery and promise of space exploration in weekly cliffhanging installments. In this thrilling new episode, the spaceship Ares has been heading back to Earth for 30 years, with the crew in suspended animation - except Captain Jet Morgan, whose sleeper pod failed. With the ship six months from home, Jet picks up an SOS from Mars, and wakes the others to go on a rescue mission. But when our heroes meet up with the stranded crew it becomes apparent that all is not what it first appeared. Unwittingly caught up in seismic deception, it is not only the lives of the Ares crew which are at stake - the entire future of planet Earth could be in peril... David Jacobs - from the original radio series - stars as Jet Morgan, with Michael Beckley as Mitch, Alan Marriott as Doc and Chris Moran as Lemmy.More

Excellent Reprisal of a Lost Art
This is an hour-long radio play based on the 1950's BBC radio program "Journey Into Space". It is amazing to hear how modern writers tackle the same characters used for such a long time over 70 years ago.
They did a tot-notch job of both staying true to the original feel and sound of "Journey Into Space" as well as keeping that same sense of wonder that was so prevalent in those old radio shows.
This is definitely worth the price.
