Nigel Kneale - 'The Quatermass Memoirs' FULL CAST AUDIOBOOK (2006)

The renowned Quatermass Memoirs was first broadcast on BBC Radio 3 in 1996. It is a mix of original TV soundtrack and drama-documentary, in which Nigel Kneale reflects on the 1950s fearful atmosphere in which he wrote the classic Quatermass TV serials.
The programme mixes the factual story with a dramatic narrative, in which the now-retired Professor Quatermass (played by Andrew Keir, who portrayed him in in the Hammer cinema remake of 'Quatermass And The Pit') reluctantly recounts his past exploits to a female journalist. This in turn is interweaved with soundtrack footage from the Quatermass TV dramas. The final touch is a stirring music soundtrack
Presented here as the double-CD release of 2006
