This inspired adaptation of H.G. Wells's science fiction classic introduces us to Wells, the person, who watches for fires from BBC's headquarters during the Blitz. While on watch, he retells a story that was once told to him of a time traveler who jumps ahead many millennia to discover two split descendants of the human species: the pacifist, pleasure-loving Eloi and the brutal, underground-dwelling Morlocks. All of the splendor you expect from a BBC radio drama is here—lush soundscapes, a fantastic score, and a talented cast. The bones of Wells's classic remain intact, and the story remains sure-footed more than 100 years after its publication. Wells enthusiasts and new listeners alike will be well served by this elegant and adventurous production. F.G.
