Think i got this record when i was about 7. Listening to it now, its a bit crap - set in a 60's American version of Victorian London with some appalling stagey acting. But it was my first ever exposure to HG Wells and WOTW and made a profound impact, resulting in the book being my favourite of all time and the George Pal film my number 3. As i say, pretty naff now. But... then and now, the noise the cylinder makes as it unscrews then falls off is one of the most disturbing sounds i've ever heard.
