My only problem with this is the price. This was made many years ago, and costs little for the BBC to put on a CD. Big Finish make brand new Doctor Who at a similar cost. Like all of the BBC releases, this is expensive, but worth the money if you can afford it.
There are some very good reviews of this particular Dr Who tale, so here is my penny's worth.
What I really liked about this narrative was the introduction of the Daleks' creator Davros, played by enigmatic Michael Wisher, who had an exceptional visual design. The script was further enhanced by Philip Hinchcliffe and Robert Holmes, who made the tweaks that changed the original script and made the story that much darker. Terry Nation, the original creator of the Daleks, had intentionally modelled them on the Nazis, which was further explored as the framework theme in Genesis. The story also throws up the moral issues that come with fiddling with history through time travel and the concept of genocide. As ever the audio CD was done on location in the ubiquitous stone quarry - to keep it as close as possible to the original the TV series.
