On Christmas night in 1950, Judy Garland recreated her 1939 role and stars as Dorothy in this Radio Theatre presentation of The Wizard of Oz, where she travels to a far off land of adventure and danger, only to learn that “there’s no place like home”.
Rounding out the cast were: Herb Vigran as the Tin Man, Hans Conreid as the scarecrow, Ed Max as the Lion, Herb Butterfield as the Wizard, Betty Lou Gerson as the Good Witch, Noreen Gammill as the Wicked Witch, William Johnson as Uncle Henry, Ruth Perrott as Auntie Em, Gil Stratton as the Mayor, and David Light, as Toto.

A fun, irreverent, one and a half hour long BBC Radio Drama of the classic Jules Verne sci-fi fantasy novel.
Axel, the nephew of the renowned professor and mineralogist Otto Lidenbrock, narrates the story of their Journey to the Center of the Earth.
In May of 1863, Professor Lidenbrock acquires an old runic manuscript and an encrypted message from 16th-century Icelandic alchemist Arne Saknussemm. Lidenbrock believes that Saknussemm wants to share a scientific discovery. The professor tries to decipher the message but has trouble doing so. Axel manages to decipher the message as “the traveler who climbs up on the crater of Snæfells volcano can get into the center of the Earth”. It seems Saknussemm once took this journey himself. Axel knows that his uncle will want to make a similar attempt and decides not to tell him of the find, but eventually gives in.
They then climb the volcano crater and find a slope inward. They to descend to the depths of the Earth. When they reach a crossroads, they first choose the wrong route; this path is a dead end and they are forced to turn back. Meanwhile, their supply of water runs out and it seems that the expedition is doomed to fail.

This is an audio version of the original movie that NPR produced decades ago with the permission and cooperation of George Lucas himself. Much of the original film was used as well as the actors, sound effects, and music. The script was adapted from the original script so it includes scenes and information which were cut from the film. As a result of this many of the points of confusion from the movie are cleared up. Characters are more developed and motivations are clarified.
NPR knew it could get more listeners by reviving the radio drama, which had been out of fashion for more than 30 years. The network then called on Richard Toscan, then-head of the theater program at the University of Southern California, who chose this story to dramatize.
But turning a film known for its spectacular visuals into radio wasn’t easy. The producers had to create 13 half-hour episodes from a movie that had only about 30 minutes of dialogue. They enlisted science-fiction novelist Brian Daley to write more of the back story. So for instance, the radio version has an extended scene aboard the Death Star that never appeared in the movie. In it, Princess Leia undergoes an excruciating interrogation at the hands of Darth Vader.
