In the far future, humanity has expanded out to explorer the outer reaches of the solar system. In the process, leaving behind the radioactively poisoned planet once known as Earth, but now more commonly referred to as the “Forbidden World”. However, ‘Captain Robert Newsam’ is about to discover that the planet is not as desolate as he once imagined and that sometimes the only way to get where you’re going is “The Drop”…

“The Drop” is based on the short story by John Christopher and is the first in our new series of updated versions of classic radio productions from the 1950’s.
