Friday’s Mornings with Tom featured a special interview with Forest 404 creator and writer Tim X Atack.
Atack speaks towards how he was approached by BBC Sound to produce the fiction angle of the podcast which already had three strands planned, informative analysis and a soundscape being the other two.
Forest 404 is an “environmental thriller” set in the 24th century which takes archivist Pan (Pearl Mackie) on a journey of self-discovery and revelation of her society’s history when she discovers a sound recording of a rainforest.
In the conversation, Atack speaks towards his inspiration of the sound recording based on real-life accounts he has had himself as a sound archivist at the BBC.
