Sci-Fi & Fantasy Society

Sci-Fi & Fantasy does Desert Island Discs

Room 1.25, Main Building • Mon 28 January 2019 19:00-21:00

Guests are invited to imagine themselves cast away on a desert island, and choose eight films/tv shows to take with them; discussion of their choices permits a review of their life. Excerpts from their choices are played or, in the case of short pieces, the whole work. At the end of the programme they choose the one piece they regard most highly.


Guests are also automatically given the Complete Works of Shakespeare and either the Lord of the Rings or another appropriate Sci-fi or Fantasy work. They are then prompted to select a third book to accompany them.


Guests also choose one luxury (memorabilia, anything Sci-Fi or Fantasy), which must be inanimate and of no use in escaping the island or allowing communication from outside. We will grant a special dispensation to take people there, provided they are dead and stuffed.
