Today on Radio Riel we take you on a cinematic and televisual journey into time and space — and more — as we present Sci-Fi Saturday!

Tune in and hear classic SF&F movie soundtracks from composers like Sir Arthur Bliss, Bernard Herrmann, James Horner, John Williams and John Barry; British and US Sci-Fi TV themes from the 50s to the present — from the classic to the corny — plus a few occasional touches of antique electronica, pop and lounge interpretations to introduce a few surprises and keep you guessing. There’s space opera, there’s time travel, there’s steampunk and dieselpunk, and even a little of the scary — indeed, there’s something for everyone with a taste for scientific romance and adventure.

Then join us at 11am and 7pm Second Life Time (19:00 and 03:00 UK time) for the sixth installment of our classic ZBS Adventure serial, The Fourth Tower of Inverness, followed immediately at the bottom of the hour by our sci-fi series Ruby, the Galactic Gumshoe, who today starts a new adventure: Ruby 2. It’s all in the ZBS Radio Hour, brought to you by kind permission of our friends at! Tune in on our Main Stream or join us in person at the beautiful Clarendon Conservatory in New Babbage ( And remember, if you like what you hear, there’s more — much much more — at
