Those Radio Times Advent Calendar: The Monday Play

Those Radio Times Advent Calendar continues today with an example of the wonderful world of radio drama, this time from December 4, 1972.

Journalist, raconteur and writer Simon Raven had a long and varied career in films, books and television screenplays. Here is an example of his radio work that went out in BBC Radio 4's The Monday Play series called Salvation Island.

Nigel Stock played Millionaire James Wingham whose purchase of a remote pacific island  was his personal survival policy against worldwide catastrophe.

Simon told Radio Times:"It's about this millionaire who does just that, and all the administrative problems hes faced with, I mean you have to stock up your shelter, and I suppose you get kitted out at Fortnum's.. or do you?"
