Tomorrow, Today!: The Complete Series 1 and 2: A BBC Radio 4 comedy Audiobook

Tomorrow, Today!: The Complete Series 1 and 2: A BBC Radio 4 comedy

Author: Christopher William Hill Narrator: Cheryl Campbell, John Fortune, Joseph Kloska, Peter Bowles Release Date: January 2021

1961. Radio producer Hugo is proud of his new science fiction show. Admittedly, the dialogue is somewhat creaky, the two lead actors despise each other, and the sound effects were knocked up in the engineer's kitchen - but it has rocket-ships, hover-cars, robots and Martians. It's the world of the future, where anything can happen: and often does... There's just one problem: nobody's listening. The future's about to be a thing of the past - until government intervention saves the series from cancellation. With the Russians forging ahead with space travel, BBC bigwigs are persuaded that Tomorrow, Today! could serve as a useful anti-Soviet propaganda tool. Rescued from the scrapheap, the show is free to head fearlessly for the stars - including a renowned Shakespearean thespian cast in the role of an android. But reviews are poor, the Home Office won't stop interfering, and as 1962 dawns, things are looking dark. Two suspicious deaths lead to rumours of a curse, Hugo is tempted away to TV, and with Harold Macmillan set to guest star, the programme is infiltrated by a spy. As the Cuban missile crisis escalates and the Cold War hots up, the whole show relocates to Wales - but will that prove any safer? Written by award-winning dramatist Christopher William Hill (On the Rocks), this amusing, affectionate sci-fi spoof stars Joseph Kloska, Peter Bowles, Cheryl Campbell and John Fortune.

On the Rocks: The Complete Series 1 and 2: A BBC Radio 4 comedy drama Audiobook

On the Rocks: The Complete Series 1 and 2: A BBC Radio 4 comedy drama

'A radio play by Christopher William Hill is something to look forward to with pleasure' - Radio Times It's the late 1930s, and even on the remote island of St Martin's in the Isles of Scilly war seems inevitable. But the islanders have their own battles to contend with, stuck on a rock flung 27 miles out into the Atlantic with only their natural grit and gallows humour to see them through. When a stranger in a suit arrives on the island, the locals decide he must be the undertaker come to deal with the body of the late postmaster. Then they discover he is not an undertaker after all - so they naturally conclude that he's a spy. But the truth is worse than that - his name is Frank Gunwallow and he's been sent over from Penzance to modernise the Post Office, around which their world revolves. The islanders are determined to resist this unwelcome change, and deeply suspicious of the young man from the mainland. Frank realises he's got a fight on his hands - and it'll take more than a shiny new telegraph machine to win them over... Created by award-winning novelist and scriptwriter Christopher William Hill, this gentle comedy stars Joseph Kloska as Frank, with Christine Absalom, Peter Marinker and Alex Tregear. Produced and directed by Mary Peate Sound by Jenni Burnett, Anne Bunting, Graham Harper and Caleb Knightley Production Co-ordinator: Jessica Brown First broadcast BBC Radio 4: 29 November-20 December 2013 (Series 1), 11 May-1 June 2015 (Series 2) Cast Frank Gunwallow - Joseph Kloska Mary - Bec Applebee Grace - Christine Absalom Tommy - Stuart Fox Ben - Alex Palmer Len - Ed Gaughan Reverend Tregarthan - Peter Marinker Morwenna-May - Alex Tregear Pender - Christopher William Hill Anthony - David Seddon Signor Di Bicci - Sam Dale
