The Day of the Triffids is a very good science fiction tale about a world-wide calamity that gives rise to invasive carnivorous walking plants. The protagonist must make his way through the world that is so very different after the triffids take over. This is a BBC radio dramatisation from 1957. The quality of the recording is not great, but not too bad either.

Start / Stop is a sitcom about love, marriage and tolerating each other, written by and starring Jack Docherty. Barney and Cathy have been married for ages and it shows, while Evan and Fiona's marriage is one big, noisy argument and David is old enough to be Alice's father. Start/Stop follows the story of these three couples as they try to make the best of their marriages and friendships. The characters are able to stop the action, explain themselves to the audience and start it all up again.

Much of the action...
