|Hi all, Does anyone remember the plays of Philip Levene?
I well remember a lot of his plays. They always were full of suspense and drama. He also wrote a couple of Si Fi plays, did you know?
"the ears of Doctor Jeromy" and one, can't remember the tittle, but it was in the "just before Midnight" series broadcast in the mid sixties. It concerned a certain "gedren" who had come to work in a freezer factory, He had a slight accident at his work place, but, when they took him in Hospital, they found he had a very low temperiture! He always prefered working inside the actual freezers themselves. It turned out, he was from another planet with a very low temperiture.
Also of course, he wrote the famous series "destination fire! this dealt with an ensurence agent who investigated fires.
I suppose most people would remember him for the one filmed play he wrote "murder in mind" It actualy stared Max Bygraves. There was a ~BBC radio version of it actually with other actors.
The other play I had on tape for a long time was "murder beyond" this dealt with a Medium a "missis Balis" played by June Tobin I think, who used to get information about her clients.
Brilliant plot that was. Anyone remember any of this?
Yep, I know it's going back a bit, but I'm over 60 after all.
