All at Sea

Fans of first-rate radio drama might be interested to know that Colin MacDonald's new play, All at Sea, will be broadcast on Radio 4 today at 2.15 pm.

David Murdoch is on a post-redundancy cruise in the Indian Ocean when the ship runs into trouble off the pirate-ridden Somali coast. The cast includes Maynard Eziashi.

This highly topical thriller has been produced in an astonishingly short space of time. Colin told me on Friday:

I was only commissioned to write it on the 22nd December. It was written (somehow) between then and now, and recorded at the BBC studios in Glasgow on Monday and Tuesday, edited on Wednesday and Thursday ... and goes out this coming Monday!

It will be available to UK listeners on iPlayer for seven days.

That is topical, J. Thanks for the alert - I'll have to listen on iPlayer as I've missed the broadcast. I like Colin MacDonald's work.
