      Hi there
      Will you guys go back and ever COMPLETE! the ‘Beneath The Planet Of The Apes’ audio drama, presently suspended on episode 9???
      Many Thanks
      David UK

    Thanks for listening David. More will come on Beneath the Planet of the Apes (awaiting lines now for ep 10), work and life have gotten a bit in the way of mixing fun apologies on that my friend.

    In the meantime part 2 of POTA UK goes online this week (and another brilliant mix my Lothar and the cast is wonderful!)

  5. THANK YOU! very much for your quick response and reply Bill.

    I discovered Broken Sea Audio 3 years ago purely by accident ( So glad I did ) when searching for an audio version of POTA. At the time I was moving house and had no tv, so listening to your EXCELLENT!!! audio drama’s filled my time, stimulated my mind and basically saved me lol.

    I’m a massive POTA fan, mostly the original which I watch at least 4-5 times a year, each time discovering something new, asking new questions ( what happened to the moon? )and still being excited by it.

    Your POTA and Beneath POTA audio drama’s truly enhance and compliment these movies, and expand, explain and fill in gaps that the movies don’t /can’t.

    I settle on the sofa, headphones on, eyes closed and for 30mins I am transported to the world of POTA, engrossed, engaged totally absorbed… and the reason for this is thanks to you and your colleagues.

    It’s so obvious to anyone who listens, that you ( especially ) and you colleagues LOVE POTA. You all treat the subject matter with care, respect and utmost professionalism. That coupled with the music, the sound effects and surround sound all add up to a lovingly crafted, quality and in my eyes the PERFECT audio drama, and as you say…IT ROCKS!!!

    Keep up the great work, hope you and your colleagues have a nice, safe and warm Christmas and all the best for 2014.
