Radio silence

I had a joyful hour last night, listening to a BBC Radio 4 documentary on silence, presented by Lucy Powell. ┬áIt was called “Shhhhhhh” and as the promotional notes said, “examining the nature of silence might not seem the most obvious thing to do on the radio, the medium most wholly given over to noise and which was in its day seen as a direct threat to the realm of silence in our personal and public lives.” 369 more words

BBC Radio 4

A rather good radio play - as they go. Gaiman and Pratchett's Good Omens on BBC radio.

Due to human error, both the angels and demons responsible lose track of the anti-Christ, meaning he grows up in ignorance of his destiny. As the time for the apocalypse draws near and the horsemen gather, angel Aziraphale and demon Crowley search for him in an attempt to save the world they have grown fond of, Adam becomes aware of his destiny and witch hunters, mediums and more are drawn to a remote village in the countryside – all according to the nice prophecies of Agnes Nutter. 342 more words
