Odd invasion August 13, 2022

Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.

Someone sent me a link to a 1996 BBC Radio drama based on the film Independence Day. It had a number of people in it including Patrick Moore, Toyah Wilcox, Nicky Campbell and others. Strange. Didn’t realise the BBC linked in to Hollywood films in this way.

As it happens, shortly after the film was released I was on a tube in London where someone who had seen the film that evening was getting a lot of entertainment from the over-the-top depiction of RAF fighter pilots in it. I only saw the film later and realised that what they were talking about was an absurd caricature of gung-ho, World War Two, stiff-upper-lip types.
