In April 2000, NPR, in partnership with the Hollywood Theater of the Ear, launches the most ambitious radio drama since Star Wars. 2000X unites the best futuristic fiction with superb acting talents and top-notch sound production. These audio plays celebrate the new millennium, looking to the future for adventure, satire, suspense, philosophy, comedy, and, of course, romance.

The 26 programs that make up 2000X cast an ear to the social, political, and technological possibilities of the next millennium. All plays take place totally or substantially in a time after 2000 AD. These ambitious new dramas are based on works by such science-fiction stalwarts as H.G. Wells, Jules Verne, Ray Bradbury, and Ursula K. Le Guin, along with the fiction of mainstream luminaries such as Mark Twain, Jack London, Rudyard Kipling, Kurt Vonnegut, and E. M. Forster. The award winning author and broadcast personality Harlan Ellison is the series host. Productions feature a who's who among actors: Robin Williams, Richard Dreyfuss, Samantha Eggar, Charles Durning, and some 100 others. The 2000X production team includes a Grammy winner and a Peabody Award winner.

There are some interesting titles in the series but alas, the link to the show's site 404s. Was there an archive made of this?
