STAR WARS RADIO BROADCAST POSTER, CELIA STRAIN, 1981
Following the huge success of Star Wars, a thirteen part radio programme of the film was created for NPR (National Public Radio). This included additional scenes and made use of the film's distinctive sound effects, together with John Williams' fantastic musical score. The radio programme featured the original actors Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker) and Anthony Daniels (C-3PO). Celia Strain designed a charming poster to advertise the programme, with a gleaming C-3PO taking centre stage in front of the microphone.
