Comedian Alfie Brown finds himself deep in conversation with Marie Le Conte on the subject of British politics and politicians and the inner workings of their meeting rooms, bars and secret nooks. Why do things happen the way they do, and how did we drift to a space where wrong seems right?
Producer: Richard Melvin A Dabster production for BBC Radio 4
Comedy by Katherine Jakeways about a chaotic but loving family. Starring Philip Glenister, Samantha Spiro, Aimee-Ffion Edwards, Prasanna Puwanarajah, Katie Redford and Steven Brandon.
In an attempt to prove to Donna - and to himself - that he’s got his life back on track, Joe (Glenister) starts a new business venture, working from home as a Wellness Coach. Two problems: one, he knows nothing about wellness. And two, the home he’s decided to work from is Vicky and Rav’s. Despite their misgivings, Vicky and Rav (Edwards and Puwanarajah), Donna (Spiro) and the rest of the family can’t help but be sucked in by Joe’s enthusiasm.
Meanwhile Lisa (Redford) is suffering from an acute bout of selective deafness, and Uncle Bob (Brandon) makes a spirited attempt at the world record for number of marshmallows in mouth. 44 to beat.
Teatime was produced by Sam Ward, and is a BBC Studios production.
Mark Watson Talks a Bit About Life
Multi-award winning comedian and author Mark Watson continues his probably doomed quest to make sense of the human experience. He's aided by the sardonic musical brilliance of Flo and Joan, and by a different comedy friend in each programme. This week, it's Lou Sanders. This new series examines the four seasons of the year and the seasons of a human life, as Mark - at the halfway point of his expected lifespan - considers what might come next. In this first programme, Mark and his guests discuss Spring - a time of new beginnings, lambs and other cliches. As always, there's a huge number of jokes, some songs and an awful lot of other stuff crammed into each show as the much-loved comic and his team make their way through life at dizzying speed. Produced by Lianne Coop An Impatient production for BBC Radio 4
