In the United States, these are produced primarily by public radio affiliates. Creator/TheBBC also produces a number of these on the other side of the pond, the best known of which is the original incarnation of ''Radio/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy''. Free from the financial constraints of commercial networks, Creator/TheBBC continues to broadcast regular dramas on two of its national networks (which have included adaptations of ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'', ''Literature/HisDarkMaterials'' and ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' novels), and has also set up a digital channel, BBC7 (later BBC Radio 7; as of 2012 known as BBC Radio 4 Extra), as an outlet for archive radio drama and comedy. They also continue to broadcast one of the [[LongRunners longest-running]] {{Soap Opera}}s in the world, in the form of ''Radio/TheArchers'', which began as a thinly disguised farming advice broadcast, and has been running continuously 5 days per week since 1955.

RadioDrama persists to this day, but only as a shadow of its former glory, mostly for nostalgia purposes. A brief revival in the 1970's led to shows such as ''Zero Hour'', ''General Mills Radio Adventure Theater'', a ''Radio/FantasticFour'' radio show, ''National Lampoon Radio Hour'' (which was a predecessor to ''Series/SaturdayNightLive''), ''Radio/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy,'' the Creator/{{NPR}} production of ''Franchise/StarWars'', and the best known series of that era, ''Radio/CBSRadioMysteryTheater''.
