According to the latest issue of the Radio Times an all new show in the long loved Journey into Space series is set to air this weekend! Fans of JiT first heard the show on BBC airwaves back in 1953. This new program (written by the same guy) continues the tradition. For fans, this is something not to be missed, for those who haven’t heard of it before check out the Wikipedia article. This will be available for a week after the broadcast via the BBC R4 “listen again” service.

“The crew of 1960’s spacecraft Ares awakes from suspended animation in 2008. Jet Morgan – played by David Jacobs from the original cast – has been the only one left awake for the past 30 years. Unwittingly caught up in seismic deception, the Earth’s future could be in peril.”
Also, there’s an informative article about the making of this show (along with some nostalgia on the venerable Journey Into Space lineage) over on the Times Online website |READ IT|.
