URY's national award winning team presents our most ambitious drama to date, available to hear worldwide at www.ury.org.uk, with two feature length Episodes over two consecutive weeks!
‘England, May 1645: The civil war that has torn England apart between King Charles I and Parliament is nearing its bloody conclusion — and in the English countryside, a stranger seeks his old love and finds there is a son whom he has never seen...’
You would be excused, perhaps, for thinking that this is the introduction to a thrilling historical drama. And you'd be dead right. Yet this is not the history you know, for the world has turned on to a new and deadly path.
With breath-taking imagination, Ben Jeapes has wrenched the familiar flow of English history out of its course and made it into something else, something entirely other. There is a third force, an entirely alien force — the Holekhor — who have martial powers of their own, their own religious leaders who command mysterious and strange forces, and who bring with them technology that should not have been seen in England for another three hundred years...
Prepare to be astounded. History will never be the same again.’
Described by the Sunday Times in 2004 as "Without doubt the best science fiction book of the year”, the national award winning drama team at University Radio York has the privilege of the first ever dramatization of this incredible novel.
With an incredible cast of around 30 talented student actors and a specially composed score recorded by an ensemble fine student musicians this two part feature length drama brings you, through the power of radio, scenes to rival Hollywood epics as well as an intimate portrait of historical figures and beautifully crafted characters in a world turned on its head.
NOTE: This production is only going to be broadcast once and will not be available on our on demand service.

Acoustics is back!
A comedic (hopefully) and disastrous (definitely) student radio show, created in the midst of exam season to let out some steam with live acoustic sessions from upcoming artists and curious questions leading to impossible debates.
Join Sophie and James for a special late night Transmission. Back in our original slot, we will be telling tales of musical history and playing hosts of classic tracks. Potential themes for each show are the stories of iconic bands, musicians or albums, the evolution of genres and record labels.
Tune in to listen to an hour of Jazz and Soul and artists with Jazz a routes. Looking at the Musicians from the golden age of Jazz right up to the present artists making the Jazz scene today.
(Pronounced "directory Bandcamp") D:\Bandcamp>dir is a show all about the weird and wonderful world of self-releasing musicians and tiny bedroom labels found on Bandcamp. Join Night Call and 8-Bit and Beyond host Bernie, as he sticks his arm into the petri dish known as online music culture. Everything from vaporwave, to future funk, to trip hop, to doom jazz, to whatever you can think of really.
On Indiependent I'll be playing the biggest Indie and Alternative hits from the past and present and even looking to the talent of the future. From Oasis to the Arctic Monkeys, I'll have it covered! I'll also be conducting interviews with local musicians and reporting on upcoming gigs and events around York.
Showcasing the best independent and alternative music tracks from a range of genres as well as the odd interview from musicians on campus and beyond!
You could say it's post-watershed ;)
