Default Legacy

A Unique multi-platform drama for BBC Radio 7 from BBC Scotland
www.bbc.co.uk/radioscotland/legacy

A unique multi-platform drama, Legacy, produced by BBC Radio Scotland's Drama department will transmit in two-parts from this Sunday, August 22 on BBC Radio 7.

Set above and below the streets of London, Legacy combines a two-part radio drama and an online adventure game to tell the story of Jules and Harry, two 20-something siblings coming to terms with their family’s shocking past.

Shortly after the death of their grandmother Rose, twins Harry and Jules are clearing out the contents of her attic prior to the arrival of the executor of her will. Stumbling around in the gloom they come across a cryptic message hidden on an old gramophone record. Speaking to them from beyond the grave, Rose tells her grandchildren that theirs is an important legacy and that only by following the clues she’s left for them will they discover the secrets hinted at in the recording.

Thoroughly familiar with Rose’s eccentricities – their own childhood was littered with the strange treasure hunts she used to set for them – the twins resolve to head off one last time and uncover their mysterious inheritance.

The Legacy game is an audio-led adventure that focuses on Harry’s adventures. It will be available on the BBC Radio Scotland website - www.bbc.co.uk/radioscotland/legacy - from Sunday 22nd August and is made by games producer DESQ. Jules’s story is told through a two-part accompanying radio drama broadcast on BBC Radio 7. The two stories interweave, supporting each other and giving new insights into the characters and locations of the Legacy universe.

The radio drama airs on BBC Radio 7 on Sunday 22nd August and Sunday 29th August at 6.30pm (repeated later at 12.30am). Both episodes will be available on the iPlayer (bbc.co.uk/iplayer) and will be broadcast again on BBC Radio Scotland on Friday 17th September and Friday 24th September at 11.30am.

Yay BBC!

Will the game be available to people outside UK? (I know the radio will be - I listen quite a bit to BBC radio through the web.)

Hi all,

A few extra bits of info for anyone that is interested.

There is some info about the development of the game here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/radioscot...8/legacy.shtml

Also, if you’ve missed the radio plays first time around they will be broadcast again on BBC Radio Scotland on Friday 17th September and Friday 24th September at 11.30am. You can listen online and the episodes will then be on the iPlayer for a week. There will be a link to this from the Legacy website (http://www.bbc.co.uk/radioscotland/legacy/) nearer to time.
