Jonegg writes about Journey into Space

Charles Chilton


Radio: Journey into Space.
Creator: Charles Chilton

Encapsulated. Would you recommend this? why?

First heard this when i was around 8 yrs old. Listened to it in bed, absolutely terrified.

Time and Space: When and where I first encountered it

I guess around 1954/56. Age 6 to 8. In bed; terrified.

Recollection and revelations

Mum&Dad listened to it; i listened from my bedroom. Yes i guess it did inspire me towards an interest in space, the universe and verrything.

Before this...

too young to remember

Click Alert the moderator to this recollection if you see something on this page that breaks the house rules.
