In this paper, we investigate the effects of slip condition, transverse magnetic field and radiative heat transfer to unsteady flow of a conducting optically thin fluid through a channel filled with porous medium. Exact solution of the governing equations for fully developed flow is obtained in closed form. Detailed computations of the influence of the Grashof number, Hartmann number, slip parameter, porosity parameter, radiation parameter and frequency of the oscillation are discussed.
