“Eschatology” radiophonic drama by Peter Blegvad

Eschatology is a poetic exploration of the end of everything: of land where we take to ships, of radio contact when white noise fills the receiver; of individual sounds as they echo into space.

On Saturday 20th September at 10pm BST, Langham Research Centre and Peter Blegvad present a live broadcast for BBC Radio 3 from Broadcasting House.

Written and narrated by Peter Blegvad, the last survivors are played by Harriet Walters and Guy Paul. Susan Rae delivers updates on the apocalypse as it spreads around the planet.

Music and sound effects are composed and performed by Langham Research Centre, using vintage electronic instruments and tape machines.
