MIKE WALKER - ALPHA (320kbs-m4a/131mb/57mins)
BBC Radio 4 Extra broadcast: 10th November 2018
An all-knowing computer appears to have an independent life of its own - an abomination for those who believe in a supreme creator.
Father Marquez is sent to interrogate ‘Alpha’ to decide whether or not it can be allowed to exist. During their conversations, Marquez finds out far more than he expects about both Alpha and - much more disturbingly - himself...
