Paul Cornell to adapt ‘State of the Art’ for BBC Radio 4
Via Iain Banks' site
Over on his LiveJournal, science fiction writer Paul Cornell has announced that he has been commissioned to adapt the Iain Banks novella 'State of the Art' into a play for broadcast on BBC Radio 4 later this year.
Ooh, cool. I last read State Of The Art years ago, and I seem to remember that not much happened but it was a cool mood piece. I may have faulty memory. It will probably be aired at a stupid time (afternoon plays?!) but fortunately that's all irrelevant now thanks to the BBC iPlayer (who's radio version will be getting an upgrade soon.)
