For four memorable half-hours in July 2009,  Radio 4 was involved in a unique experiment in broadwebcasting as it handed over control of its output to Bigipedia - the all-round 360-degree information knowledge article-based conglomerate portal.


Inspired by Wikipedia, Bigipedia features multiple-overlapping voices to create information 'pages', service announcements, discussion forums and endless endless upgrades...


Everything in Bigipedia is utterly untrue.

The series is written and created by stand-ups and writers Nick Doody and Matt Kirshen and joined on Series 2 by Sarah Morgan with Carey Marx and is still an ever growing omni-portal. Click on www.bigipedia.co.uk for more informa-
