Download MP3

There’s extraordinarily little in the way of news this week, other than the fact that your Time Team (and a big ‘ol crew) are currently shooting Series 12 and saying nothing about it. But if you said to yourself “hoo boy would I like to hear people talking about insect movement, possibly by Roslyn de Winter,” are you in for a treat! Yes, the Three Who Rule are doing a Classic Series Commentary for the 1965 story “The Web Planet” in all it’s ambitious flawed glory, right here on this podchannel! Settle into a cocoon of mucus and nutrients and enjoy!
