Over on the newly redesigned Ganymede & Titan website, you will find tucked away in a corner some old radio shows written bt Rob Grant and Doug Naylor, a little before Cliche, and a while before Red Dwarf hit our screens.

I hope they don’t mind me embedding the first episode of Wrinkles for you to enjoy.

The show was created by its producer Mike Craig, but Grant Naylor wrote the first series alone. It aired on BBC Radio Four from April of 1980 onwards. It was on every Tuesday in the six thirty slot, with a late Wednesday night repeat.

It starred Tom Mennard, Anthea Askey, Ballard Berkeley, and David Ross (who later played Talkie Toaster and Kryten).
