Wastes of Space
About This Show
Show Info: In 2018, with Earth's destruction imminent, governments take decisive action, evacuating world leaders and relocating them to the International Moon Base. For a desperate population, confectionary giant Mars hastily organise a global raffle, offering seats on board self-sufficient, twin-manned interplanetary resettlement capsules ('recaps') in the hope of finding hospitable planets in far flung corners of the galaxy. Now mankind's very existence may depend on Mark Brenton and Christopher Bolt: the two dimwitted competition winners who found a golden ticket in their Twix. Intergalactic sitcom starring Laurence Dobiesz (Outlander), Montserrat Lombard (Ashes to Ashes), Olivia Poulet (The Thick of It) and Thomas Sindall (you've never heard of him). Also featuring James Fleet (Four Weddings and a Funeral) and BBC Radio 6 Music's Shaun Keaveny. Producer: Matthew Mills.
