The acclaimed BBC Radio 4 space drama arrives on CD in its entirety for the very first time - with a bonus introduction by creator and writer James Follett. The starship Challenger has been on a 115-year-long mission, exploring other galaxies for suitable Earth-like planets to colonise. The present crew of four were born on the ship and have never left it. But when the Challenger attempts to return to the crew's home planet, it discovers that the Earth has vanished! When they were first broadcast on radio, Earthsearch and Earthsearch II generated a flood of fan letters to Radio Times.
Now at last their superb sound is available, digitally remastered and on CD for the first time. Also included is an introduction from James Follett, first broadcast as part of BBC7's 'Men, Martians and Machines'. Twenty episodes are presented across 10 CDs, with an accompanying booklet which details the series' origins and production.
This is a welcome re-release of a much-loved science fiction series.
Reviewer: Bruce Toews from Winnipeg, Canada
In the early 1980s, a radio station here in Winnipeg aired the two EarthSearch series. In true Canadian fashion, they aired the second series first. I was captivated by the story, and at the time I sent a letter to the BBC asking if this series could be purchased in any form. Getting a negative response from them, is tas in the late 1990's that I tracked down the cassettes the BBC sold of the series. Unfortunately, even this was somewhat edited. So when this particular series came out, I was basically praying that it would be unedited and sound as good to me now as it did back in the early eighties. I was not at all disappointed. The addition of some commentary from James Follett is a welcome bonus, and I am very grateful for this long-awaited CD release of a wonderful BBC series.
