Apples to Giraffes

The Tripods by John Christopher

Episode Summary

A series that is near and dear to both Jonas and François, "The Tripods" books by John Christopher are a surprising mix of rip-roaring boys' adventure tale and terrifying pastoral dystopia, a genuine masterclass in world-building and storytelling. But can this five-decade-old YA sci-fi series still be relevant to modern audiences? Suffice it to say that Jonas and François have IDEAS about how the Tripods could and should be brought to the screen again! And yes, we do discuss the cult-classic BBC programme!
