Bird Island Returns

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.
