[AUDIO – OTR] ‘Avatar’ –versus “Courtesy”–a radio drama from 1951

Very little in Hollywood is novel.


An expedition to Landro encounters a deadly plague, and the serum they need is in the hands of the planet’s inhabitants. Based on a story by Clifford Simak, this episode of Dimension X originally aired on July 26, 1951.

Featuring adventures in time and space told in future tense, Dimension X aired over NBC from April 8, 1950, through September 29, 1951. The series adapted stories by the modern masters of science fiction, including Ray Bradbury, Robert Heinlein, Clifford Simak, Theodore Sturgeon, and many others.


One thought on “[AUDIO – OTR] ‘Avatar’ –versus “Courtesy”–a radio drama from 1951

  1. I heard this first when I was maybe 12.
    These transcribed dramas are better than most any Hollywood feature sold to us today.
    The greatest thing about encountering them in 2010 is that all intellectual property rights have passed their term limits–and thus we can enjoy such high calibre drama for free.
