Ape and Essence
Eighty years after a nuclear war ravaged the British Isles, a team of scientists from New Zealand come to conduct a survey.
The notes to the tape's catalogue entry say that it had been "previously shown as "Ninety Double Martinis"", which is the title of a 1963 book by Thomas Hinde.
