According to the BBC4 Schedule, Shaun will appear in Radio 4's new production "Smoking Guns" as the climate scientist Dr Ben Santer. In 1995, Santer proved that global warming was due to CO2; the documentary radio play tells the story of how he was vilified to prevent the world from reducing emissions.
The play comes a little over a year after another Perfectly Normal Productions project - Marais and The Soul of the Termite - starring Shaun Evans. David Morley, who produced and directed Marais, writes and directs this time. Chris O'Shaughnessy, once again, supplies the musical score, with Tom Maggs returning as a sound designer.
"Smoking Guns" is to air on Monday, April 11th, at 14:15. A recording will be available on the BBC4 website shortly thereafter.

Endeavour S9 greenlit
According to Backstage, season 9 of "Endeavour" has been commissioned, with production to begin in spring. The season will, reportedly, comprise three episodes.
Last fall, responding to our suggestion that the series will continue, Shaun Evans said, "I guess so. [...] We are going to have a conversation about it soon enough. [...] It feels more like a turning point than an ending. For everyone."
At this time, however, there has not been a confirmation from ITV.
