Victor Lewis-Smith's first radio show for 20 years explores a parallel (yet strangely familiar) universe, alternating satirically between reality and fantasy in his inimitable radiophonic style, to break new ground in the oldest of all broadcast formats.

In a universe far, far away (yet paradoxically very close to home), a family sits by the radio. They are listening to their planet's indigenous version of Desert Island Discs, presented by Roy Plomley, but something isn't quite right. Plomley's questions are dislocated in time and space, the musical choices all appear simultaneously familiar yet weirdly unfamiliar, while the guest's identity is constantly morphing from one unlikely achievement to another.
