Alan Moore, the legendary comic book writer shares two hours of his favourite music and chats to producer and writer Richard Norris about the important part it's played in his life and work.

With titles like Watchmen, V for Vendetta, From Hell and The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Alan has transformed the genre over 40 years of varied work. Hear him talk about writing, alongside his wide-ranging passion for music, magic, art labs and plenty else in between.

Expect tracks from Captain Beefheart, Joni Mitchell, X-Ray Spex, The Residents, Patti Smith and Sleaford Mods. Plus some of the music he's made himself over the years.
