Super Saturday Radioplay: Independence Day UK

It's that time again. Time for another Dirk Maggs' produced radioplay! Getting special permission to adapt a summer blockbuster movie (So long as nothing of the movie's script was used), Maggs made a version that was set in the UK, using the same method Orson Welles used for his War of the Worlds adaptation. It was set in real time, and was aired straight after the UK Top 40 chartshow on Sunday night (with DJ Mark Goodier even feeding into the "Live broadcast" between shows). Among the cast is Sir Patrick Moore, (playing himself) and Sixth Doctor actor Colin Baker. Like most of Maggs' Radio 1 offerings, this is no longer commercially available, but is presented here in it's entirety for your listening pleasure. Enjoy!
