Rockford’s Rock Opera begins. Introducing a dog called Rockford, a boy called Moog, and a mysterious sticky creature in London’s Battersea Park.
Telling the sad story of creatures called Cocklebur Icks, and how they never really got on with humans.
Rockford and the Cocklebur Ick travel to a psychedelic sea where they meet an odd creature with too many legs.
Rockford and Ick arrive on a colourful Island where they are welcomed by a large flightless Moa bird called Patrick.
Rockford is ‘checked in’ to the Island of Infinity by a guitar-riffing insect called ‘The Registrar’. And once he’s checked in, apparently, that’s it!
Far away in Battersea Park, Moog is looking for Rockford. Before long the boy is also taking a trip across a strange, tranquil sea.
Jana talks to our friends Matthew and Elaine Sweetapple, the creators of Lost on Infinity by Rockford’s Rock Opera, and we play the first episode of their story which now features in their Stories, Science and Secrets Podcast. The musical story of a dog called Rockford who travels to an island of extinct animals has been on our website for many years and is very popular. The new podcast reveals the science secrets behind the story.
