Days of Future Past

The Dan Dare Radio Station, circa 1954

Here's a nice short documentary, Days of Future Past, featuring the Dan Dare Radio Station.

It was made by Larry Hall, who takes "a look at a piece of iconic Dan Dare memorabilia. This is the Dan Dare Radio Station, manufactured in or around 1954 by Randalls under their Merit brand. Although it has Dan Dare likenesses and logos on it, there's some doubt as to whether it was officially sanctioned by the Eagle, the magazine that published the adventures of Dan Dare, Pilot Of The Future, and drawn initially by Frank Hampson".

And here's the link to Larry's original post on YouTube
