Our U.K. contributor “Roy” has clued us in on two cool BBC Radio programs coming next weekend…
The Saturday Play: Haunted Hospital
By Trevor Hoyle; Performed by a Full Cast
Broadcaster: BBC Radio 4
Broadcast: Saturday 5th May 2007 – 14:30-15:30 (U.K. Time)
A ghost story, set in a hospital and featuring two parallel storylines, one contemporary and the other set in the late 1800s, the latter drawing on real historical events. First broadcast in July 2005.
This should also be available via the Radio 4 Saturday Play “Listen Again” service for 7 days following the broadcast.
By Jose Saramago; Translated by Giovanni Pontiero.
Broadcaster: BBC Radio 3
Broadcast: Sunday 6th May 2007 – 20:00-21:30 (U.K. Time)
“A driver waiting at the traffic lights goes blind & becomes patient zero in a contagion that sweeps through a city. The authorities isolate the blind in a mental asylum. Blind thugs take over. When all are blind, all the rules change.”
This should also be available via the Radio 3 “Listen Again” for 6 days following the broadcast.
Roy also points out that KFAI‘s Sound Affects program, host by Jerry Stearns, is running a 10 part series from ZBS called The Incredible Adventures Of Jack Flanders. This 1978 series will be in the last ten programmes before KFAI removes Sound Affects for its current slot. You can listen to the latest two programmes via the RealAudio format (including part 1 of The Incredible Adventures Of Jack Flanders) HERE.
