The week of March 26th, 1979: Wales is finally exporting the works of one of its finest storytellers to the small screen.  Britain is exporting interconnected space operas, complete with space Vikings.  And the U.S.?  It’s exporting superheroes and a rare appearance by a genuine comics legend…but it’s keeping the nuclear fear to itself.  (50:16)

Retrogram #8311: Nothin’ But Time Travel

The week of March 13th, 1983: A quiet week of a busy year…so why all the time travelers? The Doctor drops in on King John, the Voyagers(!) drop in on “Wild Frank” Roosevelt, and Prince Erik Greystone drops into a whole haunted castle of trouble in the wrong month.
