    They did all three of the OT films. All three were very good and gave more details into the stories (and backstories) that the films didn't include or have the time to include. As its a series of radio plays, I also love the aspect that you create all the imagery in your imagination.

    It starts with a young Luke Skywalker fixing his T-16 Skyhopper inside the Lars homestead techdome (garage) while listening to an Imperial recruitment application tape....



    They can all be found on Youtube. Sadly, the PT was never done as a radio play....

    Love the radio dramas.
    I didn't actually hear them until after they were all released on CD, but even before then I was aware of most of the content, back when they were accepted as the basis for most of the canon, beneath only the movies themselves (back when "EU" and "canon" didn't seem to be such a big deal to everyone).
    Still enjoy listening to them from time to time.

    Yeah, @SKB, they were very good.
    Just my opinion that RotJ was purdy rushed an' I wasn't 'xactly thrilled with how the Emperor's character was written.
    Still, was what it was.

    Yep. Just that @Get In Gear.
    It's coz of the first one that I learnt how to pronounce 'Tantavie IV'. I Absolutely Loved how the story told of how Leia got hold of the Death Star plans.
    Mr. Lucas had a bit of a hand in these too. An' Yep, they were in line, at the time with what the films told.
    I so hoped that when we learnt that Rogue One was gonna be a Story/Film that it was gonna include somethin' like what played out in the Star Wars Radio drama version (Ep. 2) of how the Rebels got the plans.
    It ended up not but , that's alright too.
