POWER RECORDS

PETER PAN, 1974

SFX - - Planet of the Apes Merchandise -

Power Records reen­acted all but one of the Apes film se­ries as ra­dio plays for chil­dren (Con­quest was judged too vi­o­lent). These imag­i­na­tive re­leases in­cluded a comic, so chil­dren could fol­low along and vi­su­alise the ac­tion in the pre-VCR days. Later re­leases in­cluded al­bums fea­tur­ing the ad­ven­tures of the TV cast. Power Records can likely be cred­ited for spread­ing the Apes lore to chil­dren as much as the movies them­selves.
