Immersive and Wonderful

I have never written a review before but I LOVED this series. The combination of the story, talks and soundscapes is so original and immersive. The sound episodes by Bonobo were my favourite, so rich and wonderful. I hope they do another series!

Absolutely stunning piece of writing

So thought provoking. Found episode containing how the “slow world” ended particularly disturbing. You can actually believe it all possible. Would love to have this on cd to keep - or may be a record would be better! Have been recommending listening to this to everyone I know.

Excellent series

Enjoyed the story immensely plus listening to the talks and the natural sounds that may be lost in the next two generations.

Licence fee justified (again)

This kind of project is an example of the bbc at their best.When innovative and interesting projects like this are released that cross all kinds of boundaries it justifies the licence fee many times over.This podcast is interesting, innovative, thought provoking, wonderful to listen to and well executed.

Excellent story, and well executed

Throughly excellent bbc radio drama, great acting from all the cast. I really liked having the talk and the soundscape between each episode, gave you time to process the episode, if like me you were binging the show!

What is this???

I listened and did not understand at first but the sounds and adventure grip you. I hoped for a traffic jam so I could listen longer. Recommend you give it a try.

A fantastic show!

I’m at episode 5, and can’t wait for more. Intelligent writing, engaging world building, memorable characters - and yes, the haunting, whispering soundscapes. A truly immersive experience! Also, what a brilliant idea to combine the fictional narrative with the talks and soundscapes. Bravo!

unforgettable, joyful and heartbreaking

This podcast has been in the back of my mind since I listened last week. The beautiful call of the Sumatran bird has stayed with me as a tragic reminder of the beauty of our planet and the terrible loss we will suffer if we damage it further. The characters and acting are well defined, and their humanity is undeniable. The sound scapes conjure beautiful and vivid images of a world with enduring diversity.
