A post-apocalyptic sci-fi radio sitcom set on an environmentally ruined Earth in 2099
2099 A.D. - Professor Nebulous is the head of K.E.N.T. (The Key Environmental Non-judgemental Taskforce), an under-funded organisation designed to solve the Earth's environmental problems after several natural disasters. It is so under-funded that it has its own Laundromat service to make extra money. Nebulous is constantly ending up solving problems with the world, even having to save the entire planet on the odd occasion, while also battling his own childhood memories of his clown parents.
K.E.N.T's. staff is made up of three other people:
Paula Breeze, who is hopelessly in love with Nebulous, but he never notices.
Harry Hayes, who was badly injured by Nebulous when he accidentally disintegrated the Isle of Wight. As a result he is now a very loud voice box and no longer has the luxury of normal body parts.
Rory Lawson is a self-obsessed ladies man, who often claims Nebulous' ideas are "Bollocks! ... Sir." There is also Gemini, the A.I. of K.E.N.T.
Other characters include Sir Ronald Rolands, the Minister with Unusual Portfolio who cares little for K.E.N.T., often saying, "I'd like to do what I can, but afraid I can't", and the villainous Dr. Klench.
