5.0 out of 5 stars Journey into Space: The World in Peril CD 18 Jan 2013
By Mr. P. Harvey TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was too young to have appreciated this story which was the third in a series of 3 first broadcast on radio between 1953 - 1958. The first story, 'Journey into Space: Operation Luna', and the second story, 'Journey into Space: The Red Planet', and of course the third, were all written by Charles Chiltern who died in January 2013.

This CD collection, as well as the other 2 stories on CD, are the original radio series which have lost none of their impact after more than 60 years.

Charles was employed by the BBC and after a long career became a noteworthy writer of stories for the radio. Prior to writing the 'Journey into Space' trilogy, Charles wrote a western series called, 'Riders of the Range' but it was not until 'Journey into Space' was broadcast that the BBC realised they had an instant hit and a future classic on their hands. Charles was an amateur astronomer which doubtless helped him give body, detail and credibility to these stories which feature the interplanetary exploits of Jet Morgan, Doc Matthews, Stephen 'Mitch' Mitchell and Lemmy Barnet.

Charles Chiltern attempted to resurrect the exploits of the quartet some years later but these stories were not as popular as the original trilogy.

One might think that in 2013 these stories would have become dated but this is definitely not the case. Some of the technical detail is now known to be incorrect but the stories remain as fresh, imaginative and as atmospheric as when they were first broadcast.

I have the complete series on CD, which I love listening to, and I purchased the books too mainly in homage to Charles Chiltern but also to see how the written stories differed, if at all, from the radio and CD series.

I would thoroughly recommend the books and CDs to anyone with an interest his sci-fi.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sloppy Release 15 Aug 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought the first two installments of Journey Into Space when they were first released on CD almost a decade ago, and then like everyone else was left hanging and disappointed when the BBC decided not to release the final set on CD, but only as a download at over twice the price! They also discontinued the first two boxed sets pretty quickly, so I was lucky to get copies. As I already had the first two, this is the only set I bought. It's great to finally have it on CD, but like others have reported on the earlier sets, the stacked packaging is lousy in comparison to the earlier original releases, which came in boxed sets with individual sleeves for each disk, not to mention a booklet and a poster. With the new sets in order to get to the CDs underneath, you have to awkwardly juggle the CDs above and try not to drop them with one hand while getting the one you want with the other, then put the other ones back without having them slide all over the place. Not so ealily done. The post holding the CDs in place also precludes the possibility of having a booklet included as there is no way to fit it in the package, which is probably the reason why there isn't one other than a PDF file. The labeling on the CDs themselves is also prettly lacking, giving only the name of the serial and that it is part three of a trilogy. Sure, it's not difficult to figure out that if you have twenty half hour episodes plus a nintey minute sequel, the first ten CDs are going to have two episodes each and the last two the sequel split over them, but would it have hurt to put what is actually on each disk on the labels? Worst of all is the fact that although it is prominently advertized on both the back of the package and in the PDF booklet, "Another Journey Into Space" is NOT included in the set. Read more ›

1.0 out of 5 stars Long Wait For A Poor Product 17 Aug 2011
Format:Audio CD
We've waited years for this and now we've got 'The World In Peril' and 'The Return From Mars'. So far so good. But where is the advertised extra feature? Also the announcement at the start of Episode 11 is 'clipped' so it begins with David Jacobs saying " 'ney Into Space ". At least this happens on my copy. When this series is broadcast on Radio 7 or Radio 4 Extra we don't get this bit cut off. Come on BBC, how long do you need to get it right? Let's hope that the 'corrected' version addresses these issues. I think that this sloppy effort only deserves one star. The 'corrected' one could merit five.

Arrived promptly. Was well packed. As described. Just what I expected: the third part of the classic Journey Into Space series. The best radio science fiction series of all time.

I first heard this story on radio in the late 1950s. After all this time it was thrilling to hear it again. The quality of the audio is top notch. It has been restored and remastered for the CDs. There are twelve CDs; two episodes to each. There are 20 episodes in "The World in Peril" on the first ten discs. The remaining CDs contain "The Return from Mars" written by Charles Chilton and broadcast by the BBC in 1981. There is also "Another Journey into Space" broadcast in 2000 and featuring David Jacobs who played 'other parts' in "The World in Peril"; particularly Frank Rodgers. On CD1 there is a pdf file containing a 16 page booklet detailing the history of the series, with cast lists and episode guides.

All twelve CDs are packaged together in one plastic box. I have no problem with this as it will take up less space on my already full book shelves. The cost was more than I expected but worth every dollar/pound/whatever!
