Re-Imagined Radio

May 15, 2023

Re-Imagined Radio considers the 1954 Lux Radio Theatre adaptation of the 1951 SciFi movie, The Day the Earth Stood Still, both starring Michael Rennie. A space alien arrives in Washington, DC, and delivers a warning . . . an ultimatum. Live peacefully or be destroyed by robots of unimaginable power. Beyond science fiction literature themes like space aliens, flying saucers, and robots, this radio story overlays Cold War fear of rockets and nuclear war. The result is powerful, insightful, thought provoking, a fine example of radio storytelling. More information at Re-Imagined Radio website:
