Bigipedia is an all-round 360-degree information knowledge article-based conglomerate portal. This Radio 4 show takes a plunge into its world: mocking online communications, internet drivel, pop-ups, PC disasters, online mash ups, mobiles, search boxes, automated reply systems and other aspects of contemporary life online.
Inspired by Wikipedia, Bigipedia is Radio 4's The Sunday Format for the online age. It features multiple-overlapping voices to create information "pages", service announcements, discussion forums and endless bloody upgrade notices.
Described as "a malevolent mix between Google, Microsoft and Wikipedia taking over Radio 4 for half an hour," Bigipedia is now fully updated and corrected for version 2.0.
