    2. From BBC Radio 4 - Dangerous Visions:Part 1. It's the Solstice music festival, when 150,000 people descend on a farm in the North-East for the open-air event of the summer. The audience pours in from all over the UK and beyond. The artistes come from all round the globe. The journalists likewise. Among the hacks is Zoe Meadows, who has left her husband Jamie and two small children at home to watch the event on TV.

    3. Public health warningIt's summer festival season, and a crowd of thousands has descended on a farmer's field for an open-air rock concert celebrating the solstice. There are all the usual food vendors offering varying degrees of quality and hygiene so it's not too surprising when there's an outbreak of what appears to be food poisoning. But although sufferers seem to recover within twenty-four hours, days or weeks later they begin to have relapses, developing skin lesions and eventually dying. A [...]

    4. Listened to in audio format.Journalist and mother of two Zoe Meadows is covering the Solstice music festival. Like most crowded events there were broken portaloos and stalls offering partially cooked burgers. Zoe stayed with her friends Sam and Lisa Shore who were at the festival with their food van Sam's Sausage Sandwiches.The following morning people were hit with a 24 hour bug, all the victims had eaten at Sam's Sausage Sandwiches the day before. The next day people were recovering and it was [...]

    5. Gripping is right! A realistically possible and very scary scenario. Brilliantly performed with a couple of gut wrenching moments.

    6. A short BBC play about an apocalyptic scenario when a bacterium becomes resistant to all antibiotics. I found this unsatisfying with too little explanation and backstory, where we'd go, for example, from somebody falling ill to being buried with hardly any detail. It felt full of holes and too insubstantial to be bothered with. It also read as a long polemic against meat eating with loud, strident opinions being shouted at me which made me want to ignore the message. I thought the conversations [...]

    7. This short BBC Radio 4 play by Val McDermid is a slight deviation from her normal work but takes a great turn. The play follows an outbreak of antibiotic resistant disease, and is a worryingly prescient tale.

    8. Loved this dramatic audio play about the outcome of a world where antibiotics can no longer cure disease. Would love to listen to more of these! Good job, BBC!

    9. This is essentially a play rather than a book. Interesting story and an easy listen. Not particularly memorable!

    10. Resistance is a fun little apocalypse tale from the Queen of Crime. It’s super short at barely over two hours long, but it began life as a radio drama in three 45 minute segments, so was never intended to be a full-length feature.The story follows frustrated journalist Zoe, whose serious stories have fallen out of favour in a market saturated by gossip rags and tabloid trash. She has the (mis)fortune of being at the centre of a breaking crisis, when a solstice festival becomes the breeding gro [...]
