PULP FICTION, the science fiction genre, was once a very small and largely obscure branch of film.

Now it is a major force in film history and its movies are often regarded as the first science fiction films.

In this episode of RTE’s Science Fiction Movies podcast, we speak to one of the film’s creators, and discuss the genre’s recent resurgence in popularity.

In addition to the popular films of the genre, the podcast also features an interview with director John McTiernan.

And as always, this episode is brought to you by the incredible, incredible BBC World Service (WWS) radio station.
