Radio 4's 'Start the Week'. 13 Oct 2014
Quote:
"Why do we seek explanations for most mysterious events but prefer some when they're unresolved? That's the discussion with Anne McElvoy today, including Val McDermid who uncovers the secrets of forensic science, Susan Hill exploring suspense and atmosphere in ghost stories, Alex Werner from the Museum of London's new Sherlock Holmes exhibition and Dr David Clarke, who reveals the official accounts behind well known paranormal events." iPlayer now of course.

BBC Radio 4 has announced dates when audiences can listen to their dramatisation of Sir Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman’s cult classic, Good Omens.

Quote:
The six-part adventure, Good Omens, will begin with a special double-bill on Monday 22nd December at 11.00pm and culminate in an apocalyptic hour-long episode on Saturday 27th December.

To mark the announcement, BBC Radio 4 has released a very special clip from the programme, starring none other than the co-authors Neil Gaiman and Sir Terry Pratchett. The charismatic demon Crowley (played by comedian and actor Peter Serafinowicz - Guardians of the Galaxy, Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, Shaun of the Dead) is late for an appointment to meet the Duke of Hell and the police, played by Neil and Terry, are on his tail and about to get more than they bargained for…

To accompany the programme there will also be a series of illustrations from graphic artists, including the depictions of Neil and Terry seen in the clip by Si Gurr. Fans can head to <www.bbc.co.uk/goodomens> to see more. As the drama develops additional illustrations, clips, teasers and photos will be added to the site.

The apocalyptic audio drama has a cast including Mark Heap (Spaced, Green Wing, Stardust), Colin Morgan (Merlin, The Fall), Josie Lawrence (Skins, EastEnders), Clive Russell (Game of Thrones, Ripper Street), Julia Deakin (Spaced, Hot Fuzz), Louise Brealey (BBC’s Sherlock), Charlotte Ritchie (Fresh Meat, Siblings), Simon Jones (Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy), Arsher Ali (Four Lions, Complicit, Beaver Falls) and Phil Davis (Silk, Whitechapel, Being Human) - to name but a few.

Gwyneth Williams, Controller, BBC Radio 4 said: “... Join us ... for Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett’s Good Omens - especially made for Radio 4 listeners. We are so lucky to have such a wealth of talent and brilliance in this year’s Christmas schedule. And anything you miss you can hear again on iPlayer or download it to listen to at your leisure.”
