FM247: Radios in Motion


Lugwin Loggins is in recovery from a psychotic episode at Speedwell Hospital in the countryside of Binfield State. He is haunted by a dream of his childhood and a psychotherapist, Dr. Beradi, encourages Lugwin to explore the meaning of this dream via radio therapy.

STRANGE THINGS HAPPEN … when Lugwin moves to Pier View Court, a supported housing unit for people with mental health problems, overlooking Binfield Pier.

Shorty Mendip, who produces Lugwin’s radio show, goes missing. Liza Radley, the Occupational Therapist who Lugwin develops a longing for, leaves her job suddenly. And then Dr. Beradi is arrested on suspicion of ‘false imprisonment.’
