In this podcast we consider an age beyond Big Brother by way of performance theatre piece "A Machine they're secretly building" from Proto-type Theater.

From what might be a news desk, an office, a bedroom, a bunker under a mountain
or a theatre, two people speak up, speak out, blow the whistle and lift the veil on
the insidious machine of surveillance. A Machine they’re Secretly Building charts a course from the Top Secret secrets of WWI intelligence (via the moon, 1972’s Chess World Championships, a disco in Oklahoma and the cafeteria at CERN) through to 9/11, the erosion of privacy, Edward Snowden and to the terror of a future that might already be upon us.

Thanks to MAC Birmingham and Pro-type for their support in the making of this podcast.

This podcast was created from a segment of April's 'The New Curiosities Box' and is a King of the Buttons Production 2017 for Switch Radio 107.5FM & DAB.
