  1. The Lives Of Harry Lime: Too Many Crooks

    Orson Welles reprised his role of Harry Lime from the celebrated 1949 film adaptation of Graham Greene’s novel The Third Man. The radio series is a "prequel" to the film, and depicts the many misadventures of con-artist Lime in a somewhat lighter tone than the character’s villainy in the film.

    "That was the shot that killed Harry Lime. He died in a sewer beneath Vienna, as those of you know who saw the movie The Third Man. Yes, that was the end of Harry Lime … but it was not the beginning. Harry Lime had many lives … and I can recount all of them. How do I know? Very simple. Because my name is Harry Lime."

    The first episode is "Too Many Crooks".

  5. War of the Worlds - Radiolab

    This hour of Radiolab: an examination of the power of mass media to create panic.

    In our very first live hour, we take a deep dive into one of the most controversial moments in broadcasting history: Orson Welles’ 1938 radio play about Martians invading New Jersey. "The War of the Worlds" is believed to have fooled over a million people when it originally aired, and it’s continued to fool people since—from Santiago, Chile to Buffalo, New York to a particularly disastrous evening in Quito, Ecuador.

  10. The Lost Special

    How can a train disappear on an open track between two stations eight miles apart? That is the mystery at the center of the short story "The Lost Special" (first published in 1898) by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

    Escape’s version of the "The Lost Special" makes a few changes to the story, but it is a well-executed radio adaptation, originally broadcast on 30 September 1943.
