"Orders must be obeyed without question at all times..."

This is an auction for JOURNEY INTO SPACE by Charles Chilton i.e.:

* JOURNEY INTO SPACE (aka Operation Luna)




From Wikipedia:

"JOURNEY INTO SPACE is a BBC Radio science fiction programme written by BBC producer Charles Chilton. It was the last UK radio programme to attract a bigger evening audience than television... Initially, the series was simply known as Journey Into Space, with the subtitle A Tale of the Future added by the Radio Times. The series was set in 1965 (the year in which Chilton believed humans would first walk on the Moon), and was first broadcast in 1953–1954. The series was originally intended to have 12 episodes, and 5.1 million people tuned into the first episode, but the first four episodes (which took place on Earth) did not prove very popular, and the audience soon shrank to fewer than 4 million. But once the rocket set off for the Moon in episode 5, the audience reaction was much more favourable. The series was extended to 18 episodes, and by the time the final episode was broadcast, 8 million people were tuning in... The second series, The Red Planet, followed the adventures of the crew in their first attempt to reach and explore Mars. The most memorable catchphrase from this series was "Orders must be obeyed without question at all times", which was often repeated by many of the 'conditioned' characters. Episode 19 of the series rated a 17% audience share. This was the last time that a radio show achieved a higher rating than its TV opponent..."
