'Tales from the Crypt' was a combination radio and print production
devised and executed by Matthew Gream and Rosie Cross to explore
issues of technology and privacy at the time of the US Clipper Chip controversy.
It aired on the Australian Broadcasting Corporation's Radio National features and documentary
program 'Radio Eye' on 12th June 1994;
was published in Hyper Magazine in April 1994; along with 21C; and
extracts were used in various other publications and on Geekgirl's webzine.
I received a prestigious 1995 Michael Daley Award for Excellence in
Science, Technology and Engineering Journalism for the print version.

The publicity announcement and postcard were circulated prior to the broadcast. The
transcript was made after the production and reprinted (in part) elsewhere. A "crypto
resources" information pack was produced and given to 'Radio Eye' for distribution to interested
listeners. The article was published in Hyper Magazine.
