Religion

Episode 6 of 6

Duration:
13 minutes
First broadcast:
Wednesday 19 January 2011

iGOD is a highly original and funny new late-night comedy series for Radio 4. It stars Simon Day (The Fast Show) and David Soul (Starsky & Hutch) and is written by one of the head writers of the BAFTA award-winning The Thick Of It, Sean Gray and produced by Simon Nicholls (Ed Reardon's Week / News At Bedtime).

We all worry about the end of the world, as economists and environmentalists speak in apocalyptic terms everyday. iGOD says that trying to predict the end of the world is as pointless as moisturising an elephant's elbow.

In each episode, an unnamed, all-seeing narrator (David Soul - Starsky and Hutch) shows us that it is stupid to be worrying, as he looks back at some of the most entertaining apocalypses on parallel Earths.

Each week the population of a different parallel world is accidentally wiped out by an ordinary bloke called IAN (Simon Day).

In this week's episode a parallel earth is obliterated when Ian inadvertently mucks up global religion.

With a full-range of sound effects and wonderfully funny and surreal twists, iGOD will be a true aural extravaganza.
