Summary
Five seminal SF masterpieces are brought vividly to life in these gripping BBC Radio dramatisations, with casts including Robert Glenister, Francis de Wolff, Carleton Hobbs and Joanne Froggatt.Hugely influential on first publication, these five landmark science fiction classics continue to enthral today, and these thrilling radio adaptations are full of surprise, suspense and excitement.Frankenstein, first broadcast in 1994, is adapted from Mary Shelley’s groundbreaking story of a scientist who tries to play God and creates a monster. The Time Machine, dramatised for radio in 2009, is HG Wells’ thrilling tale of an inventor who discovers a dystopian future. The Lost World, first broadcast in 1975, is based on the classic fantasy adventure by Arthur Conan Doyle, whose notion of dinosaurs roaming our world inspired Jurassic Park. R.U.R., dramatised in 1989, is a radio production of Karel Capek’s thought-provoking play which introduced the word ‘robot’ to the English language. First broadcast in 2007, Solaris dramatises Stanislaw Lem’s pioneering ghost story set in space, and is both a suspenseful thriller and a philosophical meditation on guilt and the human condition
