POD FODDER:

Found a BBC radio adaptation of Slumdog Millionaire at Radio Archives:

Q&A Dramatised by Ayeesha Menon, from the novel by Vikas Swarup. [...]

Stunning a TV audience of millions, he draws on a store of street wisdom and trivia to provide him with the essential keys, not only to the quiz show, but to life itself. Set in modern India, Q&A is a beguiling blend of high comedy and touching melancholy. Cutting across humanity in all its squalor and glory, Vikas Swarup presents a kaleidoscopic vision of the struggle of good against evil, and what happens when one boy has no other choice in life but to survive.

A highly-successful film version of Q&A - Slumdog Millionaire - collected eight Oscars at the Academy Awards ceremony in February 2009.

Ten episodes of approx. 14 minutes each, recorded in India. First broadcast on BBC Radio 4 Woman's Hour Drama in July-August 2007.


Anyone else listening to anything good?
