From Cassette cover

Four million years ago the crew of the starship Challenger abandoned their search for Earth and made their home on Paradise, the third planet of a solar system on the fringe of the galaxy.

But while Telson, Sharna, Darv and Astra have come to think of the planet as home, the Challenger's two giant computers, Angel One and Angel Two, have different ideas. Floods, black holes and androids...

Can the crew overcome the dangers that the out-of-control computers throw at them to make it home after all theses years? And what will they find when they get there?

Written and produced for BBC Radio 4, James Follett's cult science fiction drama forms a gripping sequel to the original Earthsearch.

As well as enjoying the story at its simplest level, it is fun to spot the "references" to the Biblical version of how life began on earth. It is a story with a twist and could well be enjoyed by those who don't normally read/listen to SciFi.
