Prisoners of Gravity with Sandman's Neil Gaiman

Click here to download in MP4 direct from Google Video
Runs: 29 minutes

Part informational program on science fiction and part comedy program Prisoners of Gravity was a Canadian series on Canada's largest educational broadcaster TVO (although they didn't start using that term to describe themselves until the last couple years). Each week comedian Rick Green would transmit covertly from space as Commander Rick looking at everything from pure science fiction to more specific genres like speculative fiction.

Google Video: This week Commander Rick profiles the comic book series that everyone from Norman Mailer to the girl next door is reading - The Sandman. Featuring the key creators who've worked on The Sandman: writer Neil Gaiman, editor Karen Berger, cover artist Dave McKean, and story artists Charles Vess, P. Craig Russell, Jill Thompson, Mike Dringenberg and Kelley Jones. Plus, a glowing tribute from science fiction writer Harlan Ellison, who wrote the introduction to the Sandman graphic novel, Season Of Mists. Sorry for the quality.
