When I was 10 years old, back in 1953, I listened in awe to the original JOURNEY INTO SPACE serial (recently bought again from you, for sheer convenience and now listening in the car!!). It was nearing its conclusion when I went down with appendicitis and spent New Year 1954 in Booth Hall Children's Hospital, Manchester, England. I was distraught and resigned to missing the episodes on 29th Dec & 5 Jan......the episodes dealing with the climactic meeting with the Time Traveler!!
Not for us the luxuries of tape recorders or iPods.....my dad, however, was equal to the task and took down the entire episodes, live, in Pitman's Shorthand and I lay there enthralled in my hospital bed, with my eyes closed, whilst he read them out, verbatim and in full.
Even though the serial we now hear is a 1958 remake, when I listen to it I can still 'hear' my dad, as David Kossoff, as Lemmy Barnett, yelling in fear and running away in fear from the first sight of The Time Traveler.....!! Now, you won't get THAT in a Podcast!!
Keep up the good work.
