Les Dawson's 'hologram' comeback


ITV have announced that the late, Les Dawson is to make a comeback on to our TV screens, in "hologram" form.

Les Dawson: An Audience With That Never Was will mark the 20th anniversary of the comedian's untimely death in June 1993.

James Rock, chief executive of Musion Systems, told the Today programme's Sarah Montague that "it's not actually a hologram but the world perceives what we do as holograms, so we call it holograms."

He explained how the technology allows people "to appear as though [they are] on stage".

First broadcast on BBC Radio 4's Today programme on Friday 31 May 2013.
