Time Out says

Petit's digital remix of his debut feature came out of a desire, prompted by Gareth Evans and Ben Slater (credited as associate producers) of Entropy magazine, to revisit some of the original Bristol locations with editor Matthews at a time of change in the city. There's much here that fans of Radio On will enjoy: Bruce Gilbert's reworking of the soundtrack; all sorts of 1979/98 split-screen fun, mixing Hi-8 video with Super-8 and original footage; contact sheets, stills, shots of the making of the original. Look out for the dismantling of the Victoria Street flyover, which means that a retake of the languid drive-by shot of the Grosvenor Hotel, with its lonely Edward Hopper figures in bedroom windows, is, sadly, not possible.
