BBC Radio 3 will be featuring a must listen documentary this Sunday in the “Sunday Feature” slot…
Weird Tales – The Strange Life Of H P Lovecraft
Radio Broadcast – Approx. 45 Minutes [DOCUMENTARY]
BROADCASTER: BBC Radio 3
BROADCAST: Sunday December 3rd 2006 @ 21:30 – 22:15 (UK TIME)
“Geoff Ward examines the strange life and terrifying world of the man hailed as America’s greatest horror writer since Poe. During his life Lovecraft’s work was confined to lurid pulp magazines and he died in penury in 1937. Today, however, his writings are considered modern classics and published in prestigious editions. Among the writers considering his legacy are Neil Gaiman, S.T. Joshi, Kelly Link, Peter Straub and China Mieville.”
This should be available via the ‘Listen Again‘ feature for 7 days after the broadcast too. This is exciting isn’t it?
Many thanks to Roy, or intrepid UK sleuth, for this exquisite find.
