Death Of A Thumbnail

EHow dangerous is the theatre? Could creative differences lead to blood? What happens when a member of a tight-knit theatre troupe is murdered? How quickly are thespians at each other's throats? This week, Tom throws a literal spanner in the works —albeit an oversized wooden prop spanner— which we use to craft a classic whodunit murder mystery. Join us as we enter The Thumbnail: a tiny struggling theatre, lost in the crowded back streets of London's West End. When the theatre's patron and matriarch, Dame Kataly Wedgewood is murdered, DCI Henry Chackles arrives on the scene to investigate as the troupe begins to turn on each other. Will the struggling theatre implode before the culprit is found?

Beyond Terra: Moon-Landing Special

EIs our future among the stars? Will we ever live on the alien surface of an asteroid, moon or planet? What are the implications of privatised space exploitation? This week, in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, Tom hurls a 4 billion-year-old Odessa meteorite fragment at Will. We use it to tell the story of down-on-her-luck Australian mining tycoon, Shirl Basset. She's hired by a disruptive space exploration company, Beyond Terra, and put in charge of a bold asteroid-capture mission. In her way stands Deacon Cutter, the ruthless leader of a rival company's team with his finger on a nuclear trigger.
