Book Description

5 July 2004 BBC Radio Collection
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 the listener 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. The complete first series has been remastered and restored, and is presented in a lavish CD box set for the first time, with beautiful full-colour packaging and an accompanying booklet detailing the series' development. This collector's edition features the complete series "Operation Luna", as well as the documentary, "Another Journey Into Space" and an excerpt of rare footage from an otherwise lost episode. It is a must for fans of "Journey Into Space" and a true collector's item for all science fiction fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Iconic radio! 23 Jun 2006
Format:Audio CD
I was first introduced to 'Journey Into Space' by my father many years ago and he had the series on audio cassette. I was hooked from episode one and have longed for the series to be on CD. This set has not disappointed me at all.

The thirteen episodes are the full, unedited versions (unlike the cassette versions) of the remade series aired originally in 1958 (the original 18 part series from 1953 no longer exists in its entirity).

The adventure endured by Jet, Mitch, Lemmy and Doc is just as exciting and thrilling as ever. A lot of the credit is due to the brilliant writing of Charles Chilton but a special mention should be made of Van Phillips whose music is just superbly fitting.

For any fan of BBC radio serials, this is an absolute must-have.

For those interested, the boxset includes a folded poster of the stunning comic-book artwork, a booklet covering the making of the series with an episode guide and each of the seven discs comes in its own cardboard sleeve.

I am so pleased that the BBC have brought back this classic drama. What is even better is that it is now on CD remastered and in the most beautiful box. Well worth the price. Congratulations BBC Radio Collection, I will be ordering the next two parts when they come.
