Dangerous Visions: new sci-fi season launches on BBC Radio 4

18 May 2016 2:07 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




A heads-up for sci-fi fans. BBC Radio 4’s Dangerous Visions season is back for 3 weeks, starting this Sunday the 22nd of May…

Since Buck Rogers hit the airwaves in 1930s America and Orson Welles put the willies up listeners with his chill retelling of The War Of The Worlds, radio has long been a friend to science-fiction.

Happily, BBC Radio 4 continues that fine tradition with a new season of sci-fi programming over the next few weeks, including new commissions as well as dramatisations and readings of work by Aldous Huxley, John Wyndham and Kazuo Ishiguro.  

Dangerous Visions, so named for the celebrated 1960s Harlan Ellison-edited sci-fi anthology, returns on Sunday the 22nd of May with Huxley’s Brave New World, with Anton Lesser. Then it’s an invasion classic with a dramatisation of Wyndham’s The Kraken Wakes featuring Tamsin Grieg, with versions of William Morris' News From Nowhere, »

Evolution review – an amphibious dystopia between nightmare and reverie

5 May 2016 2:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

In Lucile Hadžihalilović’s diverting fantasy, boys are implanted with foetuses, but the film never quite achieves the body horror or eroticism it seems to aim for

Lucile Hadžihalilović’s Evolution swarms and ripples across the movie screen: a weird stingless jellyfish of a film. It drifts through an amphibious world of its own, somewhere between nightmare and reverie: intriguing, but never quite arriving at that pure jab of fear or eroticism or body horror that it appears to be swimming towards. The action takes place on an island of the dystopian future or alternative-fantasy present, in which a race of young boys are tended to by expressionless, eyebrowless, white-clad nurses. Human reproduction is different here: it is the boys who must bear the foetuses, which are implanted by surgery, and there are no adult males – indicating a future of sacrificial obsolescence for these youngsters. Maybe this is how humanity has evolved or is evolving, »
