Blood On The Prairie (half an episode) 1963
Blood On The Prairie
Episode 1 (2nd half only)
19th March 1963
Written & Produced by Charles Chilton.
The series was 13 episodes. This is the 2nd half of the first episode, the first half having being recorded over.
Charles Chilton (who died last week at the age of 95) is of course best known for the radio serials Journey Into Space which ran from 1953 to 1958. Before this (from 1949 to 1953) he did 6 series of "Riders Of The Range" set in the old wild west. He returned to a wild west theme with Blood On The Prairie in 1963. Unfortunately whoever recorded this off air (in wonderful quality I might add) went and recorded over the first half of the episode, but this at least gives us a little taster of one of Chilton's other works.
