from archive.org

Aired on Radio Luxembourg between July 1951 and May 1956, The Adventures of Dan Dare radio show, based on the first Dan Dare comic story from Eagle, produced it was revealed in 2020, by Harry Alan Towers (aka Peter Welbeck) - which was a revelation to longtime fans who have been trying to document the show for many years.

The series, which ran for 764 episodes over four years, was written by a team of writers, including script editor Geoffrey Webb, who also co-created and wrote Dick Barton - Special Agent and The Archers for the BBC. His sons were avid followers of the show - just like an estimated three million other fans across the UK and beyond, according to one contemporary newspapers article.

Edward J. Mason, who co-created and co-wrote Dick Barton and The Archers, worked on the show with Webb. His credits also include creator of the radio serials The Lady Craved Excitement and What the Butler Saw, both of which were filmed by Hammer Films; and a mystery series, Shadow Man for Radio Luxembourg in 1955. He also wrote for television.
