'A Man From The Future' - which sees the duo backed by the BBC Concert Orchestra and the BBC Singers - will feature a musical 'evocation of the life and work" of Turing, who was granted a posthumous royal pardon for his conviction for homosexuality last year, although Turing committed suicide in 1954. The evening will also include an orchestral medley of Pet Shop Boys songs and new orchestral arrangements by David Lynch's musical collaborator Angelo Badalamenti of music by Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe.
