Following the pilot episode last week, our editor hosts his second radio show in the key of the new Adam Curtis documentary.

What is HyperNormalisation? The term comes from the Soviet Union, to describe a state where everyone knew they were living a lie… and so begins the making sense of an illogical and senseless world in documentary maker Adam Curtis’ latest work, HyperNormalisation. It’s now available to watch on iPlayer and somewhat inspired whilst watching it, we decided to make a radio show of songs on the soundtrack or that are tenuously linked to the subject matter. Plus we mark the return of Phil Collins and pick two of the best Bob Dylan covers.
