BBC to Air 'Bring Me The Head of Philip K Dick'
BBC Radio Three is scheduled to broadcast a program entitled "Bring Me The Head of Philip K Dick." The website summarizes the episode:
"Gregory Whitehead's dark, surreal and satirical drama, set in contemporary America, centres on a deadly futuristic weapon in the shape of the android head of science-fiction writer Philip K Dick. Invented by a shadowy research unit inside the Pentagon, the head - which believes it actually is Dick himself - is wreaking havoc on society and must be stopped before it finds its body."
The program is scheduled to air on Sunday March 8, at 20:00 hours. I don't know when this is exactly, but it looks like the show will be available as a podcast. More info here.
This sounds good, and the character names sound better:
Cryptica Scriptura ...... Elizabeth Aspenlieder
Cathy Nebula ...... Karen Beaumont
Reverend Darkleigh ...... George Bergen
Nancy Robinson ...... Hilary Deely
Philip Dooley ...... Richard Jackson
Tiffany Splenda ...... Karen Lee
The Potato Man ...... Jon Swan
Perky Pat ...... Anne Undeland
The Patriot ...... Gregory Whitehead
Written, produced and directed by Gregory Whitehead.
Music by Laura Wiens and Nick Zammuto.
Poem by Jon Swan.
Update: Haven't listened yet, but the early reviews are positive. You can stream the audio until March 15 right here. Anyone know how we could get a podcast of this?
Update 2: Listened to the program last night, whoa, it's a trip. Make sure you take your herbal supplements before listening....
