I am very pleased with a couple of reviews I completed for the BBC Radio 4 Dangerous Visions season. The reason I am so pleased is that I was approached by Radio 4 to review the pieces. Now I am sure they approached many other reviewers but it is nice to be asked and the BBC carries a certain cachet. It does show the value of networking and brand.
The details of the reviews are below.
The two reviews
First up was an adaptation of Ray Bradbury’s The Martian Chronicles. I found this easy to review as I am both familiar with the book and enjoyed the production. Following the publication I made contact with someone involved in the production and he shared some thoughts on how they might have adapted it in two parts.
I always like it when people I write about find themselves mention in my reviews then get in touch.
The other review was another science fiction classic, Philip K Dick’s Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? As it happens I read the novel in the last year so was well placed to comment on this. I won’t bore you with my Bladerunner anecdote!
