Since Gary Numan exploded into the post-punk and new wave landscape with chart-topping singles Are ‘Friends’ Electric? and Cars, much has been made of his obvious links to science fiction.

In the run-up to his homecoming show at the Eventim Apollo, Hammersmith on the 28th of November, Gary made a special trip to the BFI Southbank to discuss the sci-fi films and television shows which influenced him and how they shaped his lyrics, aesthetics, stage shows and thinking.

From his childhood fascination with the technology of Gerry Anderson’s Supercar and Fireball XL5 right up to his longstanding emotional relationship with Blade Runner, Gary talks us through his lifelong obsession.

Giving a rare insight into how film culture has helped shape the face of modern music, Gary gives a passionate advocacy of the sci-fi genre and the ways in which it can benefit society.
