Bird Island – the radio sitcom from Katy Wix – returned to BBC Radio 4 this week, and you have exactly one week to catch Episode One via iPlayer.
As we mentioned earlier this week, the show is an atmospheric comedy about Ben: a cheery scientist working in Antarctica, played by Reece Shearsmith. The show focuses on his chirpy Dictaphone diary, populated by his fellow scientists, played by Julian Rhind-Tutt (Green Wing, A Touch of Cloth), Alison Steadman (Gavin and Stacey, Fat Friends) and Katy Wix herself.
It’s delightfully silly fun, and you can hear it every Friday night via BBC Radio 4 Extra. Tonight’s broadcast on Episode Two is at 10:00pm, and it will be available online shortly after transmission – alongside Episode One, which is over yonder now.
