I’m your host, Paul Greaves, come join me for a journey into old time, science fiction, radio. Stories that captured imaginations a long time ago and evoked a sense of wonder, something seldom experienced in today’s media.
Why call this show Yesterdays Tomorrows? Much science fiction deals with the future and these are mostly futuristic stories that went to air mostly between the 1930s and 1960s. (occasionally you will hear more recently produced stories)
2000 Plus : The Other Man
This time, an early recording from the 1950 s American Sci-Fi radio series ‘2000 Plus’. The story is ‘The Other Man’.They say there is one other person in the world that looks exactly like you but in the year 2120 there is a device somewhere that makes it possible for you to meet that person. Scott Douglas knows the problems therein.‘2000 Plus’ is one of those 1950s series sometimes ( not always )characterised by the limited production technology and presentation experience of early radio but this can be amusing to. These stories were enthralling at the time and they still hold entertainment value today.Sunday 12 July at 5 pm for ‘The Other Man’
