The Stoppard radio plays are a long term occupation and interest of the author and are in themselves very entertaining but not everyone would agree since listening to a radio is sort of old fashioned .

Gilmour told the playwright Tom Stoppard that he wouldn’t listen ‘until it was actually going out on radio’. He wanted to catch ‘the extra vibe’. He may be a rock superstar but he’s still in thrall to radio: ‘There it is being listened to at that moment by all those people. Dave’s on to something there,’ he told us on Front Row last week. In Darkside he plays upon the album’s themes of what we’re here for, how small the earth is, fear of burn-out, catastrophe. I didn’t try to make a story that was the album writ large,’ Stoppard told Mark Lawson. I invented a little story in the spirit of the album. It’s quite a coup for Radio 2. Not just its first-ever original drama, but a first-class radio drama by Stoppard, who has not written for the stage for seven years.

Darkside, as Stoppard calls the play, isn't a musical, with actors performing the songs. It's an abstract interpretation of the music and its possible meanings, dramatized by a small cast of recurring characters, with the album's songs woven throughout the piece as a soundtrack. The play, which you can hear on the BBC here until Sept. 2, 2013, begins with the infamous heartbeat that opens The Dark Side Of The Moon album  . The troubling scenario is just one of several "thought experiments" or imagined moral dilemmas Stoppard introduces throughout the hour-long Darkside. If a plane is going down and there's only one parachute, whom should you save? Is cheating necessary if everyone else is doing it?
