Today’s show: Autumn Sci-Fi

September 7, 2011

Today on Resonance FM

I’m ready for my close-up: Autumn Sci-Fi

In a glass brightly - Source Code and Escape to Witch Mountain

In a glass brightly - Source Code and Escape to Witch Mountain

As the Autumn nights start to draw in, we have a couple of recommendations of DVDs worth staying in for, as Alex Fitch interviews a pair of directors who have both earned cult followings for their work in the SF genre. Duncan Jones talks about his new film Source Code, a time travel thriller starring Jake Gyllenhaal and about how themes in his new movie consciously and unconsciously reflect some of his concerns of humanity dislocated by technology in his debut Moon. Alex also chats to John Hough, director of the classic Disney film Escape to Witch Mountain (1975), starring Ray Milland and Donald Pleasance. Hough followed his first family film with a couple more for Disney – Return from Witch Mountain and The Watcher in the Woods – and talks about how the company’s approach to live-action filmmaking has changed over the years.

6.30pm, Wednesday 06/09/11, Resonance 104.4 FM (London) / streamed at www.resonancefm.com / extended podcast online, featuring an additional interview with John Hough on Sunday 10/09/11 at www.scifilondon.com/podcast
