The Rough Guide to Space Opera: Audio Drama - Blue Tyson

Audio Drama I am goin got call work that is not broadcast radio, and designed with audio in mind like the earlier old time radio shows and unlike the direct readings of audiobooks. Some independent producers occasionally make work like RRAC and their shows such as Anne Manx, starring Claudia Christian of Babylon 5 fame. Or the comedy Ruby the Galactic Gumshoe

More commercial productions come from Graphic Audio, who have made several adapations of Elizabeth Moon's Serrano series and sequels.

Big Finish Productions produce original stories. Of subgenre interest are their Stargate stories, both SG-1 and Atlantis. They also worked on some Warhammer 40,000 adventures for the Black Library.

B7 Productions has produced three reimagining stories for the beginning of a different Blake's 7, and also some other stories about Vila and Gan and Cally and more. These have aired on the BBC apparently.
