    Hi Brian. Coincidentally, we’ve just got confirmation of the airing date so you are officially the first to know. The show will air nationwide in Ireland on Newstalk Radio on May 12 & 13, 2012 (the weekend before Taylorfest) and will be available worldwide as a podcast on their web site from then on. Thanks for your interest and please ‘Like’ our FB page below. Cheers.

  3. I would love to review this film for my work on Examiner.com – please let me know what I need to do to require a screener.

    Thanks so much!

    Hi Kay. ‘Who Killed Bill’ is in fact a radio play (well docu-drama, as the drama is interspersed with interviews with Historians and Hollywood experts) produced in the style of a 1920s news report. We think it’s a really exciting project and would love you to review it.

    We have plans, however, to produce a film on the story in the near future. But like everything else this is dependent on funding. We’ll post updates about it here, on our FB page or via Twitter.

    Thanks so much for your interest.
