A comedy drama about a love letter to the brooding welsh hills. This comedy drama centres around four people and how they communicate. Whilst a curious tale of how their lives become entwined, delivering a message, it is also very witty, lyrical and humorous. Owen is Wales’s greatest nature poet. The hillside where he lives is threatened by the intrusion of a radio mast: that essential component of a modern world built on ready communication. Owen suspects that what passes for communication is largely the meaningless babble of a society that is obsessed with talking and has lost the capacity to think: the new Babylon. Is the telecoms revolution making life better, or does it merely highlight our own human inability to reach out to one another? Signals is a play about communication, and also a love letter to the brooding Welsh hills. Presented by Hands On North East.
