Operation Luna

A Journey Into Space fansite

Welcome to Operation Luna, a site for fans of the classic radio series Journey Into Space.

Journey Into Space is a BBC Radio science fiction programme written by BBC producer Charles Chilton, and was the last UK radio programme to attract a bigger evening audience than television.

The original recordings of the show were erased shortly after broadcast, and for several decades it was believed that no recordings of the show had survived.

However, in 1986 a set of misfiled Transcription Service discs was discovered, containing complete copies of the three original series.

You can read about the three series (Operation Luna, Red Planet and World In Peril), the characters, cast and crew, production, broadcasts and media, and special episodes.
