  There will be twelve opportunities to change which character's perspective is broadcast on-air. When the majority vote changes, the drama switches from one character’s thoughts to another’s. The drama also moves to the chosen character’s physical location in the space. You’ll know when a switch has happened when you hear this sound. ListenListen

You can vote whenever you like, and as many times as you like, throughout the drama. Every three minutes the votes from phone and texts are collated to determine which character’s point of view is heard next. So keep voting to hear the clues that you hope are in the mind of your chosen character.

Those who choose not to interact can just sit back and enjoy the drama uninterrupted as it unfolds.
