Watchmen S1E1 - The history of Watchmen

This podcast talks you through the history of Watchmen, in association with Sky Atlantic.

Self-confessed coin book addict Andrew Harrison and broadcaster Jamie East talk through the potted history of Watchmen and discuss what may be on the horizon for Damon Lindelof's reimagining.

It's intended to be a useful podcast to listen to before you watch the first episode, given the fact there's a lot of previous ground covered that may be useful to know.

Watchmen is available exclusively on Sky Atlantic every Monday at 9pm. Son't panic if you've missed an episode however, as they appear On Demand straight after. More more information about Watchmen and all the fantastic shows on Sky Atlantic, head over to
