Trivia

  • The BBC7 listings give Journey Into Space as the programme name, and The World In Peril as the episode title - for every episode.
  • So my routines went ahead and merged everything they could, on the assumption that the same title meant they were the same episodes getting repeated.
  • I think they're almost right.
  • There was a repeat run on Radio 2 between 19910621 and 19911115
  • The full sequence of Journy Into Space is
    1. Journey To The Moon/Operation Luna
    2. The Red Planet
    3. The World In Peril
    4. The Return From Mars
