Kurt Andersen thinks time travel is the ultimate fantasy. He's made peace with the fact that he probably won't be climbing into a time machine any time soon - because, he explains, he already has. The past isn't nearly as dead as we thought. Next, Simon Wells (the great-grandson of H.G. Wells) directed the 2002 film adaptation of his ancestor's classic novel, The Time Machine - he explains his design for the time machine. David Goldberg thinks it will actually look more like a spaceship; he and Connie Willis also debate whether a visitor to the past would be able to reshape the future.Finally, Connie Willis, a winner of multiple Hugo and Nebula awards, admits she was first drawn to time travel out of a desire to go back and fix her own mistakes. Now she loves using it to allow her characters to experience history. She reads from her upcoming novel, Blackout, in which she sends time travelers back to World War II.

In this hour, when you're fed up with our world, take a mental holiday. We do. There are other worlds you can visit, like the one Patrick Rothfuss created and turned into a best-selling phenomenon. His first novel The Name of the Wind climbed its way to the top of the list. His second novel The Wise Man's Fear, started there. He tells Jim Fleming how the world came into being.Next, another world you might try is the past. In Connie Willis' world historians can actually go there to study. In two new novels, Blackout and All Clear Willis takes us to World War II. She tells Anne Strainchamps why the past is a natural subject for a science fiction writer. Then, the past is a fascinating place to visit, especially when you consider how little it would take to make it an entirely different place. Political analyst Jeff Greenfield has lived through fifty years of world history, and knows first hand how small things matter. He tells Jim Fleming about his novel Then Everything Changed.Finally, are alternative universes purely the stuff of make believe? Or could they actually exist? Recent discoveries in physics and cosmology have led many scientists to consider the possibility that our world is one among many. Certainly physicist Brian Greene thinks so. He makes the case in his new book The Hidden Reality: Parallel Universes and the Deep Laws of the Cosmos. Steve Paulson finds it all a little puzzling. [Broadcast Date: April 25, 2012] 1.

Kurt Andersen thinks time travel is the ultimate fantasy. He's made peace with the fact that he probably won't be climbing into a time machine any time soon — because, he explains, he already has. The past isn't nearly as dead as we thought. Then, the forward-thinking space funk singer performs "Sincerely, Jane" from her album Metropolis: The Chase Suite. She tells Kurt how she came to connect with her alter ego, Cindi Mayweather, an android from the 28th century.Finally, Simon Wells is the great-grandson of H.G. Wells. He directed the 2002 film adaptation of his ancestor's classic novel, The Time Machine. Wells has very specific ideas about how a time machine should be designed — but David Goldberg says the time transport vehicle might look more like a spaceship; Goldberg and Connie Willis also debate whether a visitor to the past would be able to reshape the future.

9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The complete BBC radio series of Micky Flanagan’s autobiographical comedy show – plus pilot episode.Based on his Edinburgh Comedy Award-nominated show What Chance Change?, Micky Flanagan’s debut radio series combines brilliant stand-up with insightful behind-the-scenes interviews to tell the story of his life from the 1970s to the 2000s.These four episodes chart the Cockney comedian’s progression from working-class Herbert to middle-class intellectual giant – and being awkwardly caught between both worlds. Via hilarious jokes and sharply-observed comic routines, Micky takes us from the mean streets of the East End to the leafy lanes of East Dulwich, outlining his rise to fame from Billingsgate fish porter to successful entertainer, from Sunblest to panini, tabloids to broadsheets and the street party to the dinner party. We hear how he left school without qualifications, ran away to New York to be an international lover and player, returned to education to become a teacher, and settled down with his wife and built his stand-up career.Chatting to family, friends and special guests – including sociology professor Paul Willis, millionaire plumber Charlie Mullins, and fellow comedian Sean Lock – he considers how his upbringing shaped his identity, discusses the thorny issue of class and comedy, and explains how, over four decades, taking chances has changed his life.Written and performed by Micky Flanagan.Produced by Tilusha Ghelani.First broadcast on BBC Radio 4, 25 May-15 June 2010 (Series 1). 1. Language: English. Narrator: Micky Flanagan. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/bbcw/005460/bk_bbcw_005460_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
