Dan Dare - Pilot of the Future
dramatisation based upon an original Frank Hampson story Inludes recently updated episodes
British science fiction action hero Dan Dare was created by artist Frank Hampson and his editor the Reverend Marcus Morris.
Dan Dare first appeared in the Eagle comic story "Dan Dare, Pilot of the Future" from 1950 to 1967 (and subsequently in reprints); and was dramatised seven times a week on Radio Luxembourg between 1951–1956.
Described as "Biggles in Space", the original incarnation was seen by some as the British equivalent of Buck Rogers and Flash Gordon.
