By Ed Hime
A fictional documentary. Alec Turin, sci-fi writer, and creator of cosmic refugee, Lazarus Jones, investigates the Boolians, a religious movement, 32 of whose members, including his parents, disappeared in broad daylight in 1973.

Ed Hime writes funny, sad, grown up dramas - often focused on an ever-present microphone - that play with the radio form in exciting and entertaining ways. Previous works include The Incomplete Recorded Works of a Dead Body, which won the Prix Italia in 2007, Listen to the Words, which won the BBC A and M Award for Best Drama in 2009, and We Outnumber You, which represented the UK at the Prix Europa in 2011. Obey the Wave includes some extraordinarily dodgy old radio sci-fi.
