NEW WORK AT KATE MACGARRY, LONDON
From 10 November – 17 December 2011 we will be showing Romeo Echo Delta (Version A) at Kate MacGarry. Version B was broadcast this Halloween on BBC Radio Merseyside, after Version A was rejected by the BBC editorial policy board, who deemed it too realistic and likely to induce panic in their listeners.
It plays with the tradition of radio hoaxes and fake UFO scares, most famously, Orson Welles’ 1938 radio play of H.G. Well’s sci-fi classic War of the Worlds and the BBC’s groundbreaking 1926 Broadcasting the Barricades by Father Ronald Knox.
