Journey Into Space was a BBC Radio science fiction program written by Charles Chilton.  Originally, four series were produced (the fourth being a remake of the first).  Chilton went on to write three best-selling novels and several comic strip stories, based upon the radio series.

Created in 1953, the first series was simply known as Journey Into Space, with the subtitle A Tale of the Future added by the Radio Times, but within the BBC it became known as Journey to the Moon. The series was set in 1965 (the year in which Chilton believed humans would first walk on the Moon), and was first broadcast in 1953–1954 on the BBC Light Programme.

In 1958, Journey to the Moon was re-recorded for the BBC Transcription Services (retitled as Operation Luna), because the original recordings had been erased. The first four episodes of the original series were omitted, and episodes 12 and 13 were merged into a single episode.

Shirley Jackson was a popular and controversial American author, who was born in December 14, 1916. She is best known for the short story The Lottery (1948).  She is also well known for the 1959 novel The Haunting of Hill House, which was adapted in the 1963 Robert Wise film The Haunting.  She has influenced such writers as Neil Gaiman, Stephen King, Nigel Kneale, and Richard Matheson.

Jackson's husband, the literary critic Stanley Edgar Hyman, wrote that "she consistently refused to be interviewed, to explain or promote her work in any fashion...She believed that her books would speak for her clearly enough over the years."

NBC Presents: Short Story was a half-hour program offering dramatizations of contemporary American short stories by famed writers such as William Faulkner, F. Scott Fitzgerald, John Steinbeck, and Ray Bradbury. The series premiered February 21, 1951 on NBC and ran in three different incarnations until May 30, 1952.
