This CD makes available for the first time all the surviving BBC radio broadcasts of H.G. Wells. The earliest dates from 1931, by which time Wells was already in his sixties and a renowned public figure, recognised not only for his science fiction, but also his far sighted commentary on social and political affairs. Like his contemporary Bernard Shaw, Wells was invited regularly into the radio studio to air his views on a wide range of issues.
