The Wire is BBC Radio 3's showcase for works that push the boundaries of drama and narrative. In "Rapture Frequency", analyst Michael Shorthall is listening to the black-box recording of an ill-fated transatlantic flight when he stumbles across an unexpected sound. Interference, white noise, or could it possibly be proof of something more celestial?

Also featuring Esther Hall, Shaun Dooley, Philip Jackson, Marty Maguire, Richard Howard, Paul Kennedy, Susie Kelly, Laura Conway, and Abbie Spallen. Written by Abbie Spallen. Sound Design by Bill Maul, John Simpson, and Matthew Laughlin. Producer/Director: Heather Larmour.
