The World in Peril 1955 reviewThe World in Peril radio show


Jet Morgan returns from the journey to Mars, his crew has lost several members, few of the ships did not make it back, he prepares for the inquisition into his decisions during the trip. Once they reach Moon, the surviving crew members only hope to get long rest, but is seems they will not be given chance to recuperate - they are given orders to remain on the Moon to keep their return secret and soon they are sent on another mission, this time much closer than Mars. During their exploration of Mars Morgan discovered alien lifeforms and it seems that their ships have just reached Earth, at least that is what their superiors are afraid. Morgan, Mitchell, Doc Matthews and Lemmy are sent to Lake District, where one of the Mars ships have landed - they hope to examine it or even take over in hope to stop or delay the invasion, but on arrival they discover the ship looks nothing like the ones they saw on Mars. What is more it seems that the passengers of the ship might have left the area.

Classic British scifi radio show, third from the Journey into Space trilogy by Charles Chilton. While two first parts were dealing with journey towards and exploration of Mars the third part returns to Earth, where alien invasion might have just started. During the original broadcast Journey into Space gathered more audience than TV shows that were aired at the same time. To this day it is considered to be one of the best British radio shows and enjoys not only re-runs, but also additional adaptations.
