To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Superman, BBC Radio 4 produced Superman on Trial, a drama about Metropolis’ superhero. Written and directed by Dirk Maggs, this story was partly based on Superman: Last Son of Krypton and some early issues of Adventures of Superman.


Poisoned with Kryptonite and put on trial for causing as many disasters as he prevents, Superman must relive his past as his closest friends as allies try to save him from eternal imprisonment in the Phantom Zone.
