BBC Radio 4’s Dangerous Visions is a season of dramas exploring contemporary takes on future dystopias, inspired by the literary distinctiveness and imaginative world view of JG Ballard.


Sunday 23 June - Concrete Island by J. G. Ballard

On his way home, one Friday rush hour, bullish architect Maitland crashes his Jaguar off a motorway junction outside London. At first he seems bound to be rescued, but watched by passers-by, his attempts fail and he finds himself increasingly helpless and trapped on a strange, neglected island between the highways. Discovering that the island already has its own, marginalized inhabitants, a disturbed young woman and her co-dependent, brutish male helper, this modern day Crusoe is forced to confront himself and his new companions to construct a world in which he can survive.

Concrete stars Andrew Scott as Maitland. Directed by Mary Peate.
