We’re thrilled to reveal that Slung Low’s Flood: To the Sea (Part 3) will air on BBC Two this Saturday (12 August) at 10pm. It will be available to watch on BBC iPlayer for 30 days following transmission on BBC Two.
What if the fleeing masses from our TV screens and Twitter feeds, in their boats and their orange lifejackets, had English accents? Because displacement is like disease: deep down we think it only happens to other people.
Flood: To the Sea is the third instalment of an extraordinary year-long epic commissioned for Hull UK City of Culture 2017 that will be told online, live in Hull and on BBC television. Created by the groundbreaking Leeds-based theatre company Slung Low, it is directed by artistic director Alan Lane and features new talent from a range of backgrounds and disciplines. It is written by award-winning playwright James Phillips, and directed by Ross MacGibbon for BBC TV.
Flood: To the Sea (Part 3) is being shown as part of the BBC Arts strand, Performance Live. Performance Live is a risk-taking and pioneering new strand of programmes, generated through a partnership between BBC Arts, Arts Council England and Battersea Arts Centre, that brings some of the most innovative and exciting artists working in performance in England today to prime time Saturday night television on BBC Two in 2017 and 2018.
