BBC Radio 4: Documentary on Philip K. Dick


BBC Radio 4BBC Radio 4 will be airing a half-hour documentary on the transcendant experience near the end of Philip K. Dick‘s life. It’s called “Confessions of a Crap Artist” but the documentary’s title probably isn’t specifically about the PKD novel of the same name.

Here’s the BBC Radio 4 blurb:

“Philip K. Dick is now world famous, thanks to films like Blade Runner, Total Recall and Minority Report. But in the last years of his life he encountered something so strange and troubling he couldn’t stop writing about it. Writer Ken Hollings asks: Was it Phil’s fault God talked to him or was it God’s?”

It airs Monday 16th January 2006 bewtween 20:30-21:00 in the UK. You can use the website, mentioned below, to calculate when that will be for you. Another option may be is the “Listen Again” feature on the BBC4 website.

UPDATE! …. HERE‘s a link to the listen again feature for the documentary.
