When I was nine years old I was first introduced to the British science fiction radio drama Earthsearch written by James Follet and released for the first time on BBC on the 6th of January 1981. I listed to the Finnish language version created by Radio Theater of the Finnish Broadcasting Company, released somewhat later than the original British version. It tells the story of Challenger a ship designed to explore the universe and capable of near light speed travel. Its model of physics and astronomy is largely accurate. Time dilation is a major plot element. The first season contains 8-9 episodes depending on the version and the second season contains 10 episodes.
In addition to the BBC version, two foreign language versions were made: Finnish (like I mentioned above) and Norwegian. Out of curiosity, when I'd hear rumors that a Norwegian language version existed about ten years ago, I sent email to NRK (the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation) to ask if it existed. The answer was negative. But later, I discovered the Norwegian version on YouTube. Government employees ... LOL
Are any of my followers (British, Finnish, Norwegian) old enough to have listened to this as kids? Do you have favourite shows you enjoyed in your childhoold you'd like to share with us?
Here are all the versions:
