I love radio dramas, it’s a format that seems to be dying out over here (Canada)–is the situation much different in England? It is truly a “theatre of the mind” and it’s no small wonder that a writer like Samuel Beckett loved the format, some of his best pieces initially written for performance on the radio. Good post, thanks for the tip…

Dear Cliff,

actually Radio drama seems to keep going in this country. There’s always new stuff on the BBC (including a channel devoted to it on Digital) and companies like Big Finish, Magic Bullet and Cosmic Hobo do great Sci-Fi ‘radio’ plays on CD…
Thanks for your comment last week as well. Hopefully Life on Mars will turn up on BBC Canada (?) in due course…

best wishes,
Alex

“Life on Mars”, “The Mighty Boosh”, “Black Books”…there’s nothing even CLOSE to those fine programs over here. The state of Canadian broadcasting (TV and radio) is absolutely appalling, the best we can manage is bio pics on Canadian personalities no one gives a crap about and programming slotted toward special interest groups. Christ, the broadcasting policies in this country are dated, out of touch and embarrassing…

Still, at least you have some good film makers coming out of Winnepeg…
Sounds like you might have to invest in a multi region DVD player and order some of our TV on shiny disc…
