On Radio 4, the Food Programme talks about pumpkins and squash. Things are decisively scarier on Radio 4 Extra with a repeat of last year’s The Stone Tape at midnight (listen if you dare) and the excellent dramatization of JS LeFanu’s Carmilla at 6 pm followed by something by Moy McCrory entitled All Hallows.
Monday 31 October
On the day itself, Radio 4 Extra gives us a repeat of last year’s Ring at midnight and a nonfiction program, Vampires v Zombies! at 6:30 am.
I’ve also noticed the following seasonal dramas on iPlayer Radio:
Drama on 3 – Mary Rose
A series of Edinburgh Haunts, newly-produced stories set in Edinburgh
Dark by the talented Victor Pemberton (from 1978)
Drama on 3 – Vampyre Man about Henry Irving, the apparent inspiration for Bram Stoker’s Dracula
Possibly some others I’ve missed.
