From the master science fiction writer, Ray Bradbury we have the following radio play adaptations;

This time we journey to other worlds and discover a great deal about ourselves as human beings….

"Courtesy" (1955)
An expedition to the planet Landro faces annihilation when the serum protecting them against a local plague runs out due to human error. The serum that was being used is found to be very much past the expiry date. The native inhabitants are immune to the disease, but seem to be reluctant to explain the reason for their natural immunity. Quite a damning commentary on the human species!


"First Encounter" (1964)
The first Earth expedition to the Moon offers the “possibility of life” as well as "air on the moon." The astronauts approach closer to the moon to determine what caused a sudden rise in temperature that could indicate the presence of an atmosphere on the moon. After landing and being taken prisoner by the "Lunies," they discover that their captors have an unexpected idea of how to achieve world peace.
