17 Days of The Triffids

Beginning June 5th, the BBC Radio show 7th Dimension will be running a 17-part reading of John Wyndham’s classic The Day of the Triffids. Each part is about 30 minutes making the total piece about 8 hours. For folks outside the UK, the BBC makes the recordings available for 6 days after the broadcast at their Listen Again site.

I read this cozy-catastrophe story several years ago and loved, loved, loved it. Nothing at all like the cheesy movie I saw in my childhood. Thankfully. This is one of those books that you know you are going to read again. Luckily for me, I have since acquired the hardcover SF Masterworks edition of this.

  1. You have to love the BBC. I look forward to the day when their entire archives are available online.

  2. They’re do far ahead of everyone else in the UK, you can understand why the commercial stations are getting stroppy. The TV Licence is such good value.

  3. Should read “they’re SO far ahead”, can’t tyep.
