The novel by Jules Veme adapted for radio in eight parts by HOWARD JONES.
The travellers are overwhelmed by a hurricane which drives them back to their starting-point. They find, close at hand, the road taken 300 years before by the alchemist Arne Saknussem - the road to the centre of the earth - but there is no way ahead. It is blocked by a huge mass of granite.
