The complete first series of the BBC Radio 7 sci-fi drama set in the virtual world of a futuristic game. Originally broadcast from 2 - 13 March 2009. John (Gunnar Cauthery) is grieving for his girlfriend, Lioba, and convinced she is still alive in the virtual game 'Planet B'. He moves through bizarre and exciting worlds in search of Lioba, and his escape.
This is another classic program by the BBC. The show has a fantastic original theme to it, and the BBC staff involved have shown there class at producing an original idea like Planet B. Series one and two are both available to download and at the end of 2010 series three was on the radio and will surely be available soon. A modern classic.

It had been a few months since I read the premise, and had pretty much forgotten what Planet B was all about. This meant I started listening without really knowing what to expect, and to be honest, it’s a little confusing at first. It’s also maybe a little slow to get going, but once it gets up to speed, I found it was well worth persisting with.
