Jules Verne's early science fiction novel Journal to the Center of the Earth was adapted to an eight-part radio series by BBC radio in 1963 -- 99 years after the book was first published. Today the science in the story is specious but in 1864 the concept of a hollow earth was at least possible, if not probable. The radio adaptation, in eight half-hour episodes, follows Verne's story fairly closely.
Bernard Horsfall, perhaps best known as playing James Bond's colleague (and "Official Sacrificial Lamb") in The Spy Who Loved Me and for various roles in BBC's Doctor Who series, starred with Jeffrey Banks (about whom I know zilch).
