If you are in Aberdeen tonight we are holding a launch event at Underdog, Union Street. You'll be the first to hear episodes 1 and 2 and some extra material from the soundtrack. Writer and director Neil Cargill will be there to answer any questions about the making of series 1.  There will also be a very small quantity of Akiha Theme 7" singles on sale. The event is supported by Aberdeen Performing Arts. 

A unique audio drama series created by writer/director Neil Cargill and musician/sound designer Simon James featuring an original electronic music score and full cast including Ian McDiarmid, famed for his role as Emperor Palpatine in the Star Wars saga, as Cuttings - the radio ham who picks up a mysterious voice.
