Radio drama is an old and illustrious art. In 1970, Radio Netherlands organised a radio drama competition to attract listeners in America. This play, “Post-mortem” was one of the winners. A boy who has been killed in a demonstration for more love in the world has a “dialogue” with the pathologist performing the autopsy.
