Summary

Maurice Denham, Roger Delgado, David Spenser, and Miriam Margolyes star in an atmospheric BBC full-cast drama from Doctor Who writer Victor Pemberton. "Listen! Quiet! Everybody stand still for a minute. There's something. Can't you hear it?"
During an abnormal heatwave in March, the air becomes thick and dull. Nothing moves, and you can almost hear the silence. Something was bound to happen.

Sci - Fi of the past

This is a great old recording. Very British 'stiff upper lip' characters. Good story

Easy Listening

Well, the story isn't particularly great but it is captivating in a sci-fi B movie kind of manner. The characters are a little cardboard but the setting and delivery appealed to me because they are reminiscent of the sci-fi I liked as a boy. For this reason I found The Slide somewhat nostalgic and comforting and have since listened to it twice. Definitely easy listening!

A Horrible Premise For a Story

Any additional comments?

This was an unbelievably well-executed and produced radio dramatization of a horrible story. It's a shame so much talent and work was wasted on such a stupid idea for a story. Giving it 3 stars is VERY generous.
