Rich Carlson writes in about a 2001 radio drama that is getting re-aired. The program in question was scripted by the same guy who did the phenomenal Chillers – Four Tales of Terror series. Of it Rich sez:
Mike Walker’s award winning radio play, Alpha, is an accessible, if somewhat controversial “tale about a computer so all-knowing that it seems to have (a) life of its own”. Of course, there’s much more to the story than that. BBC7 describes Alpha as “chilling” and this is not far from the truth. Hypnotic and thought provoking with haunting music and first rate performances, Alpha is not to be missed.
And don’t forget you can use the BBC7 “Listen Again” feature for 6 days after the broadcast!
