Old Time Radio Drama: Forbidden Planet Decoded

Special | 1h 11m 8s | Video has closed captioning.

Norman Gilliland and the 9XM Players present “Forbidden Planet Decoded,” a radio play which updates some of the science of the 1956 film classic and restores elements of the play that inspired it—“The Tempest” by William Shakespeare. In “Forbidden Planet Decoded,” the residents of Altaira 4 and their earthly visitors collide in a place where the ultimate power is not science but the human psyche.
