You heard. We’re now into the week of Red Dwarf‘s thirtieth anniversary, and it’s about time we disclosed our full plans to mark the event. Clear your diaries for Thursday, because we’ve got lots of lovely treats in store, and hopefully you’ll want to join us. The morning will see the long-awaited results of our Pearl Poll published – the ideal start to your anniversary day – before we congregate for a very special LIVE DwarfCast in the evening. It’ll be a jam-packed show, and here’s how it’ll go down:
8:30pm – Now! Something Something Something Music – We start with an extended musical warm-up, featuring specially selected hits from right across the last three decades.
9:00pm – Poll To Poll – The show proper kicks off with an in-depth discussion of the Pearl Poll results, including a look at the G&T team’s combined rankings.
9:30pm – The End Commentary – Our first ever live episode commentary! We’ll be watching and talking over the broadcast version from 1988, not the Original Assembly or Re-Mastered or Japanese edition. If all goes to plan, you’ll be able to sync up with us and watch at the same time, so get your copy of the episode ready beforehand.
10:00pm – Ganymede & Titan Unplanned – In which you, the listeners, set the agenda. We want you to provide the talking points, which can be anything even vaguely Red Dwarf related from the last thirty years, preferably things that we don’t talk about very often. There are many ways to get involved – you can leave a comment on this post, you can tweet us @ganymedetitan, and you can join us in the Spreaker chat on the night.
But most excitingly, this section of the show will be a phone-in free-for-all. Anyone can call up and say what they like to us via Skype – just add ‘ianiansymes’ between now and Thursday night, and listen to the show for instructions on when to call. This will go on until we run out of callers/topics, or fall off air, whichever comes first.
So, start suggesting topics, dust off your Series 1 DVD, add us on Skype and remember to head over to our Spreaker page at 8:30pm on Thursday, ready for the chat to begin at 9pm. We hope as many of you as possible will join us, to help give Red Dwarf the celebration it deserves.
