"Could you believe me if I said I'd been right out of the world—outside this world—last summer?" — Eustace, to Jill Pole

Cover of the CD release

The Silver Chair was produced in 2002 as a Radio Theatre production by Focus on the Family, The C. S. Lewis Company Ltd. and Tyndale Entertainment. It featured a full cast, orchestral music, and an introduction by Douglas Gresham. It was dramatised and directed by Paul McCusker.

Broadcast History

On December 26th 2005, in Britain, BBC Radio broadcast the first four of the 'Chronicles' recordings back to back as complete, continuous performances. They were: The Magician's Nephew; The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe; The Horse and His Boy; and Prince Caspian. The remaining three Chronicles (The Voyage Of The Dawn Treader, The Silver Chair, and The Last Battle) were aired on BBC Radio in fifteen 50 minute episodes on consecutive weekdays from 22nd December 2006 to 10th January 2007.

Differences from the Book

  • Eustace and Jill call each other by their first names throughout the radio play, as opposed to only once or twice in the book. No mention is made of the tendency for pupils at their school to only use each other's surnames.
