I'm sorta interested in that radio drama of the show..which ran in South Africa in the 1970's...How many were done, and how many exist as of today ? Was the show popular there ?

They're excellent fun and well worth hearing. In terms of background, just about everything you could wish to know about them can be found at Alan and Alys Hayes' superb website devoted to the series:

Hope this is of use. Smile

I love the radio series. Great fun, especially on road trips. Donald Monat and Diane Appleby do an excellent job of creating their own iterations of Steed and Emma (and that pair definitely have something going on, I have to say). I've listened to all the ones that Alan's made available. Kudos for him and his site.

You are too kind, Andrew, my friend. A compliment like that from you makes all the effort more than worthwhile.

Not too kind at all squire. When I say I like something, I mean it, and the work you guys put in on that site to bring new information to us all was quite remarkable. Just the sort of thing I admire and appreciate.

All the best

The good news about Avengers on the Radio is that the next serial in line - A Deadly Gift (aka The Cybernauts) - is finally getting restored. It's a tough and demanding job and I keep putting it off in favour of something easier, but I'm determined to polish off (and up!) the remaining five serials including this one in the near future.

For details, please click here!

Yay! I can't wait, Alan. I love the radio series. The best spin-off of the series, IMO (well, not counting TNA!). I'll have to set aside some time when it comes out.

It's my favourite part of The Avengers as a whole, but then I'm biased! It's not as good as the TV series in style or execution, but it's just so much fun!

Thank you, Alan! I'll save it until I have the time to savour it. Can't wait!

The Super Secret Cypher Snatch... and the project is already well underway!

Also, I've been flexing the mental muscles tonight and have worked out a way to determine a broadcast order for the surviving serials. Why it took me this long to think of it, I don't know, but it all slotted into place like a jigsaw!

Click the URL in my signature for details (see What's New?).

I still haven't listened to a (complete) radio show yet, although I have set my self to do so long ago.

The Great Gong robbery was hilarious though.

As is hinted by my avatar, I've been listening to the radio serials every night at work lately, and I'm really getting into them. I can see why Alan has developed the affection he has for them. I'm thinking of writing episode reviews for them.

I used to listen to them in the car many years ago, great series. A Deadly Gift was always top of the list Wink
