Urban forest, feral pets and rotting real estate …

Do you think The Good Life could be remade, with me or Dave playing Tom Good (maybe not!)? If you have seen something on TV or heard something on the radio recently that you want to talk about, tell us here.

welcome to a world without people

Film depicts Earth after extinction of humanity
By Jasper Hamill

Sunday Herald 16 March 2008


I think this sounds really interesting - something I might even watch - if I had a telly!

IT'S THE end of our world and feral domestic pets stalk the deserted cities of Scotland. Holyrood lies in ruins and the Clyde has burst its banks....

....The point of the film, to be broadcast next weekend, is to stimulate discussion of the environment without a preachy, doom-laden tone, said Alan Weisman, who wrote the book that first imagined Earth free of mankind: The World Without Us.

"The future is seductive. People always want to know what will happen and I thought this would be a good way of removing the fear factor from reading environmental stuff," said Weisman.

Life Without People airs on The History Channel, Sunday March 23, 9pm

Yep - but I gave up about a quarter of an hour in. I was so bored I can't remember what I was bored about.
