I’m ready for my close-up: Godzilla & 1950s Japanese sci-fi movies

To coincide with the start of Resonance’s Space Soon Week, here’s another chance to hear Richard Thomas’ show on the BFI re-release of Godzilla (a.k.a. Gojira, 1954) and The Mysterians (a.k.a. Chikyu Boeigun, 1957) on DVD… Richard talks to Ken Hollins, writer of the book ‘Destroy All Monsters’, about the continuing appeal of The Gorilla Whale and classic Japanese sci-fi.
