Dan Dare: The Audio Adventures - Volume 2

Summary

This excellent collection includes the last three stories from season one of Dan Dare's Audio Adventures and the bonus feature documentary Dan Dare: 21st Century Spaceman. Reign of the Robots Dan Dare and his crew return to Earth. Landing in London, they find the city deserted - or that's how it seems at first. But soon Dare faces an army of robots who have conquered the planet and placed the humans in slave camps. The robots are too powerful and numerous to be resisted, and their invasion is complete. With limited resources, Dare, Digby and Peabody face their greatest challenge yet - to liberate planet Earth. Operation Saturn As work begins to rebuild Earth after the devastation of the robot invasion, Dare and his friends in Space Fleet remain vigilant, certain it is only a matter of time before the Mekon launches a fresh attack. When the wreck of the Nautilus - an experimental ship lost a decade before - appears in orbit of the moon, Dare, Digby and Peabody are sent to investigate. They find the ship and its crew were destroyed by alien weapons. All clues lead them to Saturn's moons. With Earth still vulnerable, our heroes must journey to an unknown world. Prisoners of Space After a sequence of nonstop adventures, Dare, Digby and Peabody find themselves in a limbo of paranoid calm. Whilst there's been no sign of the Mekon anywhere in the solar system, Dare is certain Earth hasn't seen the last of the evil alien. Mysterious spaceship disappearances near Venus, an academy student accidentally launching a prototype spacecraft, and a floating prison cell in space reveal themselves as parts of the Mekon's latest plan to defeat his archenemy, Dan Dare, once and for all. Dan Dare: 21st Century Spaceman. Science journalist Richard Hollingham explores whether the reality of space exploration is catching up with the Dan Dare universe. Featuring interviews with the cast, director and lead writer about reinventing Dare for the 21st century. Richard meets a real rocket scientist who owes his career to the pilot of the future.

Voyage to Venus Brilliant test pilot Dan Dare is chosen to fly the Anastasia - a new experimental spacecraft - on its maiden voyage to Venus. This isn't exploration - it is to make first contact with a mysterious civilisation that has sent technological secrets as a goodwill gesture. However, what Dan, Digby and Professor Peabody find on Venus isn't goodwill but a terrifyingly intelligent, coldhearted ruler, the Mekon. A creature destined to become Dan Dare's nemesis - and Earth's greatest threat. The Red Moon Mystery Unable to return to Earth, Dan Dare and the crew of the Anastasia head to Mars, where Dan's estranged uncle Ivor is part of a team working on a top-secret archaeological dig. But when they find the base wrecked and the scientists missing, Dare, Digby and Professor Peabody soon discover that the Red Planet is not nearly as dead as everyone thought and that Ivor's expedition has woken an army of deadly insect creatures that threaten to swarm the Earth. Dare must stop the aliens, but can he resort to genocide in order to save the human race? Marooned on Mercury When a distress call summons the crew of the Anastasia to the wilderness of Mercury, they are reunited with their old ally Sondar.

Eric Ambler

Summary

BBC Radio 4 dramatisations of three of Eric Ambler’s best-selling spy thrillers, plus Nick Perry’s play The Battle of San Pietro and a bonus documentary, Ambler at 80. Eric Ambler has been hailed as ‘the father of the modern spy story’. His tense, gritty thrillers introduced a new realism to the classic espionage mystery, and influenced novelists from Graham Greene to John le Carré. This collection brings together three of his best-known novels, adapted for radio with a full cast. 'Epitaph for a Spy' When Hungarian language teacher Josef Vadassy goes to collect his photographs from the chemist, he is arrested on suspicion of espionage. The roll of film contained pictures of military installations – but Vadassy knows he didn’t take them. Can he find the real spy and prove his innocence? 'Journey into Fear' Istanbul, 1940. Amiable engineer and munitions expert Alec Graham has just concluded high-level arms talks with the Turkish government when someone tries to kill him. Escaping by steamer, he realises that his would-be assassin is also on board.... 'The Levanter' Michael Howell has kept his family's firm from nationalisation by co-operating with the new Syrian regime. But other political forces are at work in the Middle East – and Howell soon finds himself caught up in a deadly plot. This gripping tale of intrigue and double-dealing won the Crime Writers’ Association Gold Dagger Award. Among the casts of these fast-paced adaptations are Edward Hogg, Daniel Rigby and Raad Rawi. Also included in this collection are The Battle of San Pietro by Nick Perry, a 45-minute play exploring Eric Ambler’s experiences shooting a wartime propaganda movie alongside John Huston, and the celebratory Radio 4 profile Ambler at 80, in which presenter Michael Barber discusses the author’s life and work.

Stand Firm, You Cads!

Summary

Anglo-Persian Oil (later BP) was specially formed to exploit the 60-year oil concession to drill for oil, which was signed in 1901 by the then Shah of Persia. Prompted by Winston Churchill, the British Government bought 51% of the company's shares. Persian oil soon became Britain's "single largest overseas asset".

But in 1951, newly-elected Prime Minister Mossadegh declared the concession "immoral", unilaterally cancelled it, and on 1st May successfully passed a law which nationalised Anglo-Persian - and all the oil. There are riots, demonstrations, and a blockade of shipping. And in the great oil refinery on the island of Abadan, a shocked British ex-pat community struggle to understand the new world which has just arrived...

Anna Maxwell Martin, Raad Rawi and Luke Treadaway star in the first of a season of factual dramas exploring the history of oil - and the price we've paid for it.
