Charles Chilton - Space Force Series 1

CHARLES CHILTON - SPACE FORCE SERIES 1 (320kbs-m4a/341mb/2hrs28mins)
BBC Radio 4 Extra broadcast: 25th February to 4th March 2019

Charles Chilton's intergalactic adventure in six-parts starring Barry Foster as Captain Saxon Berry, Nicky Henson as Chipper, Nigel Stock as Magnus, Tony Osoba as Lauderic, Wendy Murray as Ifwa, Theresa Streatfeild as Treia, Lolly Cockerell as Voedica and Jenny Twigge as Jennie.

Charles Chilton wrote and produced many popular and successful radio programmes for the BBC - including the classic 1950s serial 'Journey into Space' - charting the adventures of Captain Jet Morgan. This fired the imagination of millions, years before the first moon landing. It was the last radio drama to record higher ratings than the new young upstart television!
