Bee Maker, The [Anita Sullivan]


2014061620190511 (BBC7)It's 2020 and the bees are nearly all gone. Human beings might be next.

Robotics expert, Deborah, builds artificial bees in order to help pollinate fruit trees across the world - real bees having been driven to the brink of extinction. But then a strange phenomenon strikes mankind - people start getting lost. It happens slowly, people lose their way, forget where they are. But before long society starts to crumble.

Deborah must fight her way across an apocalyptic Britain and find her way back home. But first she must remember where that is.

Anita Sullivan's dark and cautionary tale about our busy technology-filled lives first heard in 2014.
