Before the Screaming begins

0:01–1:29 Nedjelja 14.2.2021.

Foghorn nastavlja u nešto mračnijem tonu… zasad!

Tom i Sally Harris slave obljetnicu braka. Priuštili su si šetnju pitomim engleskim šumskim krajolikom. Što bi moglo poći po zlu?

Tsunami, snježna oluja. napad islamista, COVID-20, otmica od strane aliena… Ček, ovo zadnje izgleda najmanje vjerojatno ali upravo to će se zbiti!

Ova radio drama scenarista Wallyja K. Dalyja iz 1977. prvotno je zamišljena kao epizoda serijala Dr Who, no producenti se nisu složili. Ova nesuđena epizoda kuline serije ipak je zaživila i to ne u animiranoj formi poput kultne Shada-e već kao BBC-jeva radio drama .

Možda i bolje, jer ne mogu zamislit Toma Bakera (koji je igrao četvrtu inkarnaciju Doctora između 1974. i 1981.) kako se bori protiv sivih izvanzemaljaca!

Na koncu Sally nije oteta već Tom, a to je potaklo niz misterioznih isčeznuća muškaraca biljem svjeta. Prilično mizomalni izbor za prve minute Valentinova… ali tko zna što nosi sutra?

Meni primjerice ovo otvaranje rupa na trusnom području središnje Hrvatske nalikuje na novu nisku u lancu neobjašnjivih nestanaka…..

 

PS ako su pojedinci skontali da su graysi čest element u mojim pisanim uratcima, ne bojte se – nisam bio otet!  Jedino saam par puta vidio UFO, ali okolica Splita se ionako tretira kao hotzone po tom pitanju.

A ako vas zanima ostatak trilogije, pročitajte sažetke:

Before the Screaming Begins (1977) is a good start: our central characters, Tom and Sally Harris, are celebrating their wedding anniversary with a walk in the woods when he is abducted by aliens. Sally is frustrated when the police refuse to believe her, but then Tom is returned with new strange powers and a message from the aliens for the people of Earth, and it turns out similar appearances and disappearances have happened simultaneously all over the world; we get mixed up with the Prime Minister (Patrick Troughton, doing a brilliant impression of Harold Wilson) and sinister official A.P. Smith (played by Donald Hewlett, the only main cast member to appear in all three plays).

The Silent Scream (1979) is I think the best of the three, and has interesting foreshadowing of Torchwood: Children of Earth – so much so that I wonder if RTD has acknowledged it as source material? – though of course The Midwich Cuckoos/Village of the Damned is probably a common root. Lots of creepy children endowed with super powers (one played by Susan Sheridan who was the original Trillian at about the same time), and the government pondering extreme measures to deal with them. No Patrick Troughton this time, but Hannah Gordon takes over as Sally Harris.

With a Whimper to the Grave (1984) has the best cast but weakest plot of the three. Patrick Troughton takes back the role of Prime Minister, but loses the election to “Marge”, played by Angela Thorne (not her only such role). Timothy West is a chief alien. Maureen “Vicki” O’Brien takes over as Sally. But the central character is Donald Hewlett’s A.P. Smith, who links between the aliens’ revelation of What They Were Really Up To, and the authorities’ attempt to neutralise the alien threat. Unfortunately the to plot strands confuse rather than reinforcing each other, and the wipe-out-the-alien-menace bit is very poorly paced (and there is a very irritating character called Geoffrey Palmer, which must be an in-joke). However you’ll want to listen to it for completeness if you’ve heard the first two.

HOERSPIEL radio drama

12/05/2014.

Danas imamo priliku oživiti još jedan stari duh radija kroz pravu radio dramu. Radi se o scensko-eterskoj izvedbi u kojoj se rekonstrukcijom radiodramskih materijala, izvedenih uživo pred mikrofonom i publikom, razigravaju elementi koji su upisani u temelje radija: zvuk i tišina, kao i načini njihovog osluškivanja i zamišljanja.

Murder Mysteries

Vjerojatno vam je dosta izvanzemaljaca i SFa? O ovom izdanju, Murder mysieries po priči Neila Gaimana!

Radio drama: A Clockwork Orange

0:00–2:00 Nedjelja 7.2.2021.

Jedna od mnogobrojnih radijskih adaptacija kultnog romana Anthonyja Burgessa! Stari tonski zapis je sa djelimično oštećenog LPja ali nema preskakanja, tek ponešto krckanja koje vas možda i vrati u neka nostalgijom obojena vremena!

The Silent Scream

0:01–1:30 Nedjelja 21.2.2021.

Na neki način, ovo je nastavak prošlotjedne radio drame autora Wallyja K Dalyja… uživajte!
