Charles Chilton's classic radio sci-fi series Journey into Space thrilled listeners between 1953 and 1958, attracting almost eight million people to its gripping tale of the far future and the thrills of interstellar travel - the last radio programme in the UK to attract a bigger evening audience than television.
The second series once again starred Andrew Faulds as Jet Morgan, with David Kossoff as Lemmy, Guy Kingsley Poynter as Doc, and Bruce Beeby as Mitch.
It opened with Jet and the crew on board the flagship Discovery, leading a fleet of spaceships.
Their mission: to explore Mars, the mysterious and - as they believe - uninhabited red planet.
All twenty episodes are included here, as well as a a bonus 10-minute 'Round Midnight' interview with creator and writer Charles Chilton.
Also included on CD 1 is a PDF file of a comprehensive 16-page booklet detailing the history of the series, with cast lists and episode guides.
So prepare to blast off to Mars in the company of Captain Jet Morgan and his crew, as they head off to adventure, danger and some startling discoveries...10 CDs. 10 hrs. 10 mins.
