    This Gun That I Have In My Right Hand Is Loaded
    The story is that this piece was made by the BBC to demonstrate all the things one should NOT do in making audio drama. Listen to the narrative dialogue, bad accents, obviously awkward scene transitions, silly sound effects, and more.

    Pete Moss, Space Detective
    A live performance by the old
    Shockwave crew. The detective takes the Noir PI language even further into surrealism than usual. Written by and starring Brian Westley.

    The Technicolor Time Machine, by Harry Harrison
    The Technicolor Time Machine, Part 1

    Barney Hendrickson is a mediocre movie producer in Hollywood, California. His employer, Climactic Studios, is in financial trouble, mostly due to some unforeseeable circumstances. The only possible thing that can save the studio, and Barney’s job, would be to have a guaranteed box office sensation in the can before Monday. Unfortunately, there isn’t nearly enough time or money to write the script, build the sets or even film the movie. Except, Barney has a cunning plan. He’ll take advantage of recently invented time machine that he happens to know about.

    Adapted from the novel by Harry Harrison by Chris Boucher. From the BBC Saturday Night Theater, 1981. This production also available on YouTube.

    The Technicolor Time Machine, Part 2

    Narrated by Barney, The Technicolour Time Machine tells the tale of the filming of Viking Columbus a giant rollercoaster of a movie – a saga of high adventure shot on location in the tenth century, with some hot shield maidens and angry skraelings thrown in. The story plays it all with a smirk and is fun stuff!
