"The Quatermass Memoirs: Classic Radio Sci-Fi
"The renowned Quatermass Memoirs was first broadcast on BBC Radio 3 in 1996. It is a mix of original TV soundtrack and drama-documentary, in which Nigel Kneale reflects on the hopes and fears that existed in the 1950s when he wrote the classic Quatermass TV serials. The programme mixes the factual story with a dramatic narrative, in which the now-retired Professor Quatermass (played by Nigel Kneale) reluctantly recounts his past exploits to a female journalist. This release also includes a detailed sleeve note recounting the programme's making written by Andrew Pixley." - bbcworldwide.com

The story centres around the discovery, on a remote Scottish island, of a community of 'human mutants' capable of telepathy. A plan is in place to use them to control the British Government. Two friends Curtis Lark (Vincent Price) and Hugh Baxter (Peter Cushing) join forces to combat the mutants.
