Time Machine by H. G. Wells

Book Description

Wells' thrilling story of an inventor who travels in time and discovers a nightmarish dystopian future has been adapted several times for TV and film. This first ever UK radio adaptation, starring Robert Glenister as the Time Traveler and William Gaunt as H. G. Wells, brings Wells' fascinating ideas and extraordinary visions to vivid life. It opens in 1943, when Wells is recording a talk for the Home Service in which he questions mankind's future. After the broadcast, he spends the evening with American journalist Martha, and tells her the astonishing news that his bestselling book "The Time Machine" was not fantasy but fact. Wells explains that he was actually present at the dinner party in Richmond fifty years earlier, when the Time Traveler returned from his first fateful journey into the future. He reveals to Martha the full story of the Time Traveler's encounter with the Eloi and the Morlocks - and what really happened to him after wards...A BBC Radio 3 full-cast dramatization of H. G. Wells' pioneering science fiction adventure. This CD release also includes an introductory sleeve note recounting the making of the radio adaptation, written by producer Jeremy Mortimer.

Author Biography - H. G. Wells

H. G. Wells is widely regarded as being one of the fathers of science fiction. Among his most famous 'scientific romances' (as Wells called them) are The Time Machine (1895), The Island of Dr Moreau (1896), The Invisible Man (1897) and The War of the Worlds (1898). These SF works contained many pioneering ideas and were hugely influential in shaping other authors' visions of the future. In later life Wells abandoned science fiction in favour of social and comic novels such as Kipps (1905), Tono-Bungay (1909) and The History of Mr Polly (1910). Wells died in 1946, aged 80.
