BBC Radio Four
We promised you an announcement, and an announcement we shall now deliver:
After many pasty-fuelled writing sessions in a kitchen in Shropshire, Tim Barnes and Simon Berry are pleased to tell you that we have a 4 part comedy series starting on BBC Radio Four, 11pm on Wednesday 19th February. It’s called History Retweeted.
History Retweeted is a retelling of world-changing events with a modern twist, transporting you to timelines gone by, feeding hashtags, trolls and trending topics into moments from history.
Produced by Sally “Make It Less Smutty” Harrison and Wilfredo Acosta was The Sound Wizard; making it all sound amazing. It is a Woolyback production, to whom we are very grateful.
In the first episode, The Moon Landing: From Launch to Landing, we follow the crew of Apollo 11 as they cruise to the moon. We’re given a snapshot of an internet-savvy 1960s – astronauts are trolled, Action Chaps are sold, and America wins gold in the space race.
History Retweeted starts on Wednesday 19th February at 11pm on BBC Radio Four and runs for four weeks, if you miss it you can obviously catch up on the iPlayer.
If you don’t listen to it, we will melt your Action Chap’s eyes off.
Tim and Simon.
