Originally released in 1985 as part of the first season of audio plays from Audio Visuals (a non-profit-making fan organisation).
This story establishes the 'values' of the galactic
consortium, Conglomerate. You'll meet the
chairman of the board, but you won't discover
the real power, or indeed the movitivation behind the company.
Those elements are developed in season two's
season three's Enclave
Irrelative and season four's
as they say, was only the beginning...
Arthur Wallis, February 1990
In the case of Conglomerate, the mix between dialogue, sound effects and music was improved. Graham Wood's music, composed on one Korg synthesizer, was 'beefed up' with the addition of stereo reverb effects, giving the music a 'fuller' sound.
This is the first AV tape to feature an On Tape section. Gary Russell talks to Bill Baggs (the producer) and Nick Briggs (the Doctor) about the plans for the future of the plays. At the time, we felt this was somewhat self indulgent, but it proved very popular. On Tapes have since become a semi-regular feature of AV tapes. You have been warned!
