"Conspiracy theory alert! In 1977 Anglia Television aired a documentary called 'Alternative 3' as one of their Science Report programmes. A3's basic premise is that our planet is doomed to die from global warming and America and Russia have been secretly co-operating for decades, have colonised Mars with selected superior humans and plan to leave the rest of the human race to die when the time comes. The response to the broadcast was unprecedented with many people phoning in, newspaper articles and even questions in the house. In an effort to stop the panic the producers of the programme issued a statement claiming that the show was in fact a hoax and had been originally scheduled for broadcast on April Fools day. This bizarre story has now been made into a major feature film starring Cornelia Fischer and Oliver Tubb with a suitably eclectic electronic score featuring Add N to X, Stereolab and Hairy Butter that recalls classic sci-fi soundtracks of the 70's such as The Adromeda Strain and Demon Seed. The film itself will be released in the summer of 2001 with preview screenings scheduled to coincide with the release of the album."
