Description:  Audio reading of the classic 1970s non-fiction book by Malcolm Hulke & Terrance Dicks — specifically, the majority of text comes from the rewritten 1976 edition with some text added from the original 1972 edition. Unusually for one of these audio readings, the cover art is taken from a different book, namely The Doctor Who Monster Book.

Cover blurb:
Journey back in time with this nostalgic audio presentation performed by Jon Culshaw, Dan Starkey, Maureen O’Brien, Louise Jameson, Katy Manning and Geoffrey Beevers.

It’s the 1970s, and you’re invited behind the scenes of Doctor Who. You’ll go on location to witness the recording of two classic TV adventures (The Sea Devils and Robot) and spend time inside a vintage BBC television studio. You’ll also learn how to write a script or make a monster, 1970s-style!

Authors Terrance Dicks and Malcolm Hulke will guide you through the first ten years of Doctor Who history, detailing how it was created, the people who brought it into being, and the actors who portrayed the Doctor, his friends and their monstrous enemies.

Along the way you’ll hear some of the Doctor’s key early adventures recounted as Time Lord records, UNIT Memos, and other in-story documentation.

Brought to life by an array of familiar Doctor Who voices, this celebration of the programme’s early days is a delight for fans of all ages.
