'Mahabharata Now' - Episodes 3 & 4 - The saga continues on BBC Radio 4 on Sunday 15th & 22nd October 2023 ...
I am delighted to be a small part within this RADIO ADAPTATION of 'THE MAHABHARATA', an epic that comprises one hundred thousand stanzas of verse divided into eighteen books, or parvas. It is the largest single literary work in existence. In Episodes 3 & 4 - Yash and Padma arrive in Manchester to begin their four year exile. I pop up as the WAREHOUSE SUPERVISOR in Episode 3 and in Episode 4 I can be heard playing a myriad of characters ...
You can listen to 'MAHABHARATA NOW' on Sunday 15th & 22nd October 2023 at 3pm on BBC RADIO 4 ...
As previously mentioned across some of my socials, the recording session was an extraordinary happening, bringing a whole new meaning to the idea of 'remote' recordings. The UK-based cast recorded from LONDON at THE SOUNDHOUSE studios, linked up to the MUMBAI cast some 4,500 MILES AWAY. It all worked a treat, amazing really with the added bonus that the productions carbon footprint would be tiny by avoiding those long plane flights!!

The original ‘SURVIVORS’ was a British post-apocalyptic fiction drama television series created by TERRY NATION and produced by Terence Dudley at the BBC, that broadcast from 1975 to 1977. It concerns the plight of a group of people who have survived an apocalyptic plague pandemic (frighteningly prophetic!), which was accidentally released by a Chinese scientist and quickly spread across the world via air travel.
In 2014, BIG FINISH PRODUCTIONS released the first four-episode volume of an audio drama expansion of 'Survivors', with CAROLYN SEYMOUR, IAN MCCULLOCH, and LUCY FLEMING reprising their screen roles.
In this 3 episode latest audio instalment, 'Survivors: New Dawn 3' (this time starring CAROLYN SEYMOUR, and LUCY FLEMING), I was (as ever), delighted to be asked to play a fair few cameo roles across the box set, including put upon government minister MIKE FERGUSON.
In 3.1 The Turning Part 1: food shortages threaten the stability of the New Federal Government. Prime Minister Celia Tate clings to power and Robin Page - once a thorn in her side and now a minister - becomes involved in an uprising to depose her.
Once again, the world is changing and the best Abby and Jenny can hope for is to survive.
A really terrific cast deliver the chillingly believable world of 'SURVIVORS' ...
Here's the full cast list of 10.3 'Survivors: New Dawn 3' written and directed by KEN BENTLEY ... I had worked with quite a few of the voice cast previously which was rather nice.
Carolyn Seymour (Abby Grant)
Lucy Fleming (Jenny Richards)
Tom Alexander (Former-Ranger / Cleric)
Daisy Badger (Debra Adams)
Sean Connolly (Mike Ferguson / Groom)
Mark Elstob (Andrew / Terry Matthews)
Jonathan Keeble (Mark Osborne)
