Is there any station that is running the series anymore?
Check out this link...It's on the SCI-FI Channel very early A.M.
that made my day.
mmmm.....Ray Bradbury Theater...mmm
..and the children metallic in their beds.
I was lucky enough to find one video with three episodes of the Ray Bradbury theater in a Pawn shop in Cortez Colorado.
You might also look in your local or regional University Reserve/Media video collection to see if there are any copies of the Illustrated man, or the old Truffaut version of F-145, or the short film of the Veldt. You can usually find the Illustrated man in your local Video rental store, Rod Steiger does an exellent rendition as the main character. Something Wicked This Way Comes is pretty good. It is rumored that a Sound of Thunder is in production. Also F-145 has been tossed around. Maybe one more film also,
but the title escapes me at this time. If you like a good search maybe even some requests on E-bay could come up with a vintage book or video, some people don't value the same thing as others.
If you're a fan of the old time radio format, you can find Ray's work all over the internet for your listining pleasure, both free and for sale. Just look up old-time-radio and do a search for ray bradbury on the site you choose. More than likely you'll find something written by him, since he started in pulp fiction and old time radio writing. Good finds are shows called Bradbury 13 where they take his best shows and put them to radio drama. Really good stuff!!
This site talks about the shows available
Or here's a show to download in mp3 or real audio:
The Martian Chronicals
