A Fall of Moondust by Arthur C.Clarke
Dramatized by Andrew Lynch
Directed by Glyn Dearman
BBC Radio 4 -Saturday Night Theatre - 30.05.1981


Following a moonquake, the tourist-cruiser 'Selene' sinks fifteen metres into the dust of the Sea of Thirst. That dust is more liquid than sand, and it flows quicker than syrup and slower than water. No rescue attempt under such extraordinary conditions has ever been mounted - but now the lives of dozens of people are dependent upon it.
A gripping, full-cast radio drama.
