Broadcast notes:

Intro: The jungle monsters called Mandrels are made of mud. Isn't that a disgusting notion? On second thought, we are the stuff of dust. Is the only difference between us and them a bit of moisture? No, there is more as we shall learn to our dismay in "Nightmare of Eden."

Outro: A knowledge of Greek mythology and facility with anagrams will add to your enjoyment of next week's adventure. But then you also perceive many things never imagined by Homer or Virgil or the ancients who preceded them when we enter the labyrinthine maze which leads to "The Horns of Nimon."
