Dangerous Visions, The Zone Episode 2 of 2

Dangerous Visions - dramas that explore contemporary takes on future dystopias. Trevor Preston's sci-fi crime thriller is set in a world beyond the law. Turner is dragged back into The Zone where his rare abilities place him in great demand but put his life firmly on the line.

Trevor Preston trained at the Royal College of Art before embarking on a career in television. He wrote for many of the best dramas of the 1970s and 80s, including Ace of Wands, Callan, The Sweeney, Minder, Out and Fox, for which Trevor received a BAFTA in 1981. His film work includes Billy the Kid and the Green Baize Vampire and the Mike Hodges directed I'll Sleep When I'm Dead with Clive Owen. Trevor has written three radio plays, the first of which, Flaw in the Motor, Dust in the Blood, was shortlisted for the Imison Award and a Mental Health in the Media Award in 2009.
