SF68

SF 68, a short-lived series from—appropriately enough—1968, originated in South Africa and was produced and directed by the dean of radio drama in that country, Michael McCabe. SF 68 featured stories from established science fiction writers, drawing inspiration from the likes of Bradbury, Ellison, and Leinster. Most of the copies which have reached North America are somewhat scratchy and garbled (at least the ones I’ve been able to hear), which is unfortunate, since the shows were well made and the stories interesting. The series was dropped in favor of a mystery/horror series called Beyond Midnight, whose run was far more successful. All episodes of SF 68 are in half-hour format.
