Wells is one of the founding fathers of science fiction, renowned for his futuristic tales in which he predicted space travel, lasers, the atomic bomb and wireless communication.

This collection features a selection of his best works from across these genres.

Also included is a dramatisation of his 'New Woman' novel Ann Veronica, with Amy Hoggartas the eponymous heroine and Bill Nighy as the Narrator. One of Wells' most famous supernatural short stories, The Inexperienced Ghost, is dramatised with a full cast including Donald Houston and Christopher Guard, and four further short tales - In the Abyss, The Sea Raiders, A Dream of Armageddon and The New Accelerator - are read by Timothy Keightley and Robert Bathurst. In the fascinating documentary H G Wells: The Invisible Author, Brian Morton asks whether the focus on Wells' science fiction has overshadowed his other authorial achievements. And we hear Wells in his own words as he discusses topics as diverse as world politics, the history of the printing press, the possibilities of technology and the shape of things to come... Lastly, Martyn Wade's original drama The Wells Way brings H. G. Wells and George Gissing together at crisis points in their lives, as each tries to be more like the other.

Welcome to our Village Please Invade Carefully: Series 1 & 2

Author: Eddie Robson Narrator: Hannah Murray, Hattie Morahan, Jan Francis, Julian Rhind-Tutt, Peter Davidson Release Date: December 2019

The Geonin have invaded. They have encircled the sleepy village of Cresdon Green with an impenetrable heat wave. Nothing comes in and nothing gets out. There are, however, no killings, lasers, or human torture - well, torture comes in myriad forms. The Geonin are, in fact, quite agreeable and led by their commander Uljabaan, are doing their very best to assimilate human culture. Their rather reasonable plan for world takeover is to start small (they've noticed that the all-at-once approach usually fails), learn about humankind, and use their knowledge to efficiently spread their dominion, bit by bit. Katrina Lyons, who was only visiting home to borrow some money from her parents, is appalled. Unfortunately almost everyone in the village, the two senior Lyons included, is too cowardly, apathetic, polite or stupid to stand up to this alien menace, so Katrina has no choice but to start the resistance movement herself. In the cricket pavilion. Join Katrina Lyons and co., and Uljabaan as they do battle across innumerable arenas of war; education programs to charity shops, the realms of loyalty cards to the ethereal world of social media. Who will fold first? And will the invasion become catastrophic in scale? Find out in Series 1 and 2 of Welcome to our Village, Please Invade Carefully. This delightful radio drama stars Julian Rhind-Tutt as Uljabaan, Hattie Morahan as Katrina Lyons, Jan Francis as Margaret Lyons, Peter Davison as Richard Lyons, Hannah Murray as Lucy Alexander, and John-Luke Roberts as Computer.

Bird Island: The Complete Series 1-2

Author: Katy Wix Narrator: Julian Rhind-Tutt, Katy Wix, Reece Shearsmith Release Date: November 2019

Ben, a young scientist working in the sub-Antarctic, tries to adapt to the loneliness by keeping a cheery audio diary on his Dictaphone. On the one hand, Ben is on the trip of a lifetime to Sub-Antarctica. On the other, he's trapped in an icy hell with one other person, a dodgy internet connection and a dictaphone. Loneliness is something of a problem. His fellow travelling scientist Graham should alleviate this, but the tragi-comic fact is, they are nerdy blokes, so they can only stumble through yet another awkward exchange. Ben experiences all the highs and lows that this beautiful, but lonely place has to offer but fails miserably to communicate this to Graham. So, Ben shares his thoughts with us in the form of an audio 'log'. Apart from his research studying the Albatross on the Island, Ben attempts to continue normal life with an earnestness and enthusiasm which is ultimately very endearing. We're with him as chats awkwardly with Graham, telephones his mother and as he tries to form a long distance relationship with a woman through Chemistry.com. In fact, we follow Ben as everything occurs to him. We also hear the pings and whirrs of machinery, the Squawks and screeches of the birds and the vast expanse outside. Oh, and ice. Lots of ice. Starring Reece Shearsmith and Julian Rhind-Tutt Written by Katy Wix Produced by Tilusha Ghelani
