|ANNCR: |? |Now if you have just tuned it, coming up is our regular segment ???Let??™s Talk Texts???. Today |
| | |in the studio we will be reviewing Blade Runner and Frankenstein with special guests Jerry |
| | |Griffon and Robert Dasher, both well-known and respected academics in the field. |
| |? |During our discussion, we will be analysing how these texts represent what it means to be |
| | |human. Today??™s topic is specific in regards of correlating with the current natural |
| | |disasters being experienced around the globe. From the earthquake in Christchurch, New |
| | |Zealand, and the tsunami in Japan, our humanity is being tested by Mother nature. |
| |? |Ahem. So without further adue, allow me to introduce and welcome Jerry Griffon, expert on |
| | |Blade Runner, and Robert Dasher, specialising in Frankenstein. |
|SFX: |? |SOUNDS OF SCRATCHING. PAUSE. MORE SCRATCHING (02 SECONDS). |
|JERRY:?  |? |Thankyou, thankyou very much! It is my pleasure. |
|ROBERT: ANNCR:?  | |Yes! Thankyou, it is nice to be here. |
| | |Well, thinking about both texts, Blade Runner and Frankenstein, what does it mean to be |
| | |human and tell us what you believe about how each text develops characters, ideas and |
|JERRY: | |themes and discuss this in regards to how the context reflects changing values. |
| | |Well, if I may start here, I think that if there is a common theme between the two, |
| | |humanity is it??™s core ??“ particularly, obsessed with the superficial. |
