Tonight BBC Radio 4 Covers Captain Britain

A week ago, Bleeding Cool first ran the news that it looked like someone was making a Captain Britain TV show based on the British comic.

It turned out that they were rather just preparing a pitch. But, as a result of people suddenly asking questions of them, they put out a press release to the British media who, with a varied level of success, ran their own versions of the story. Such as this clip from The Times which seems to ignore the Moore/Davis/Delano runs, Excalibur, Avengers or more recent series with the character. Or that his sister isn't doing too badly these days.

I spouted something vaguely around the idea of how Captain Britain has been about the powerful getting more powerful, and dealing with that, mentioning Alan Moore and Alan Davis a bit, but it was rather brief.

You can hear BBC Radio 4 Live here (and you always should) and I understand that the Captain Britain bit will be at the end of tonight's edition.

I hope I'm not too terrible. I wonder what I said?
