Bird Island



Bird Island, starring Reece Shearsmith, starts a second series on BBC Radio 4 this Wednesday. The 15 minute comedy is written by and also stars Katy Wix alongside Julian Rhind-Tutt and Alison Steadman.

The four-part series follows the adventures of Ben, a young scientist working in Antarctica, who tries to adapt to the loneliness by keeping a cheery audio diary on his Dictaphone. In the first episode he becomes obsessed with cereal bars.

The show is also repeated on Radio 4 extra on Friday at 7.30am and 10pm, or you can catch up anytime on BBC iPlayer.

  1. I didn’t know there’d been a first series! Maybe this was because it had nothing to do with baking or World War 1. 🙂 Love, Barbara Date: Mon, 5 May 2014 16:13:20 +0000 To:
