Great things about writing for radio

You can write directions like this:

SOUND: a ROCKET SHIP comes to rest on HYDRAULIC LEGS ; its DOOR OPENS, a RAMP DESCENDS, and THIRTY CLANKING ROBOTS emerge, marching in formation. In the background, WIND blowing across a vast lifeless plain.

I'll probably get mail from a sound designer now, telling me that they fucking hate it when writers do this kind of thing.
