    Invisible Man: Theatre of the Mind KTWU's Theatre of the Mind presents an all-new production in the style of a 1940's radio play. Based on the classic story "The Invisible Man" by H. G. Wells, adapted by playwright Philip Grecian. In the village of Iping, in a blinding snowstorm, a heavily muffled stranger arrives at the local inn demanding a room. His head is bandaged and his eyes concealed behind blue goggles. His possessions arrive the following day - scores of strange glass bottles and boxes of books. All is well, until the landlady begins to make inquiries, the stranger loses his temper, strips off his wrappings and is... invisible! The chemicals used to achieve invisibility have begun to affect his mind, and he plans a reign of terror, using his invisibility to subjugate the village and eventually, he claims, the nation. Completely mad, the Invisible Man goes on a rampage. Not one is safe. As has been the custom with these dramas, the actors often play multiple roles and employ vintage microphones to simulate radio's Golden Age with live physical sound effects. They portray period radio performers, and so the mysterious presence of the invisible man is created through "theatre of the mind" in the imaginations of the listening audience. duration 57:36   STEREO TVG

    West of the West - Tales from California's Channel Island [#101H] First People "Rotation" is about the geologic forces 20 million years ago that pushed Santa Barbara and 4 of the Channel islands from the San Diego area to their present location.
    "Arlington Man" is about the discovery of the oldest human remains in all of North America and the affirmation that it was a coastal migration (not solely the land bridge) that contributed to the peopling of North and South America.< br>"First Contact" is actually two parallel stories. One is the voyage of Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo - a Portuguese conquistador sailing for the Spanish - who was looking for China but instead 'discovered' Alta California and the Channel Islands. And that was 89 years before the Pilgrims got to Plymouth Rock, meaning that America really started here. His story is intercut with the San Diego Maritime Museum's ambitious, years-in-the-making, and ultimately successful effort to build a replica of Cabrillo's flagship the San Salvador.
    "Once Upon a Time" is a reveal of the culture of the Island Chumash, a Native American People that thrived for thousands of years on the Channel Islands.
    "The Lone Woman of San Nicolas Island" tells the true story behind Scott O'Dell's 8 million copy best-seller Island of the Blue Dolphins,a book read by millions of Californians.
