A gentle but nonetheless capturing 15 minutes listen.

I found the story interesting but erm, there is nothing whatsoever that I can identify with Marcus.

Alex has got quite a bit of local radio stuff planned. Janice has a short series on Radio 2.

The Afternoon Play / Comment Is Free - Everybody hates Alistair Cooper
« Last post by Albert on January 30, 2017, 03:35:06 PM »
Well first things first, this was an entertaining and thought-provoking enough Afternoon Drama. A thinly veiled parody on real life people? Well that is for the listener to decide, but I'm sure many of us who use the internet will recognise some of the comments made against outspoken commentators on social media.

I knew this one was worth a listen because I had heard it before. I even found myself finishing off some of the sentences. Last broadcast on Wednesday October 5th 2016. Less than 4 months ago. No wonder.

Point of interest: Rachael Stirling, playing the lead here, is the daughter of Diana Rigg

Radio 4 / 15 Minute Drama - Clutch, Throttle, Brake
« Last post by Albert on January 30, 2017, 11:18:56 AM »
Just thought I'd like to say something about this one. Generally, The 15 Minute Drama isn't intended to be taken as a serious literary offering and this one is no different. But this one has Bill Paterson playing what I have to presume is very much himself, the dour Scotsman but with a bit of an edge and possibly with some humour lurking there too.

Mr Paterson's iMDb is impressive http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0665473/ and goes back a long way, beyond the wonderful days of Play For Today.

I think I first 'got to know' Bill in Auf Wedersehen Pet as Ally Fraser, and then as a doctor in The Singing Detective. He certainly brings a presence to a project and this one is no difference.

An easy on the ear gentle comedy.

Alison Steadman is in here somewhere too.

So, that's my morning tea times sorted for the week.

BBC World Service / amusingly cynical russian commentator - who was he??
« Last post by meezy on January 22, 2017, 12:29:40 AM »
Last Thursday, January 17, I was listening to the World Service and heard a great segment about how peasants in the middle of Russia receive news and what their opinions on Trump were.
Then they interviewed a very amusing russian analyst of some kind that offered some pretty choice comments about Trump and Putin and the US and Russia's future together... i would like to hear this segment again, but can't find it... does anybody know what i'm talking about - or can somebody suggest how to find it? I've done my best and failed to find it.
Thanks,
~M.

Radio 4 / Program on a village who kidnapped loggers
« Last post by unclejonsson on January 01, 2017, 11:35:55 AM »
Please can anyone help with the program on Radio 4 the other day about illegal loggers and how the women of the village took them hostage when they came close to their spring water supply?  The place then moved on to claim their own independence and appointed its own security.  I hope that is enough to jog your memory and perhaps direct me towards the name of the program. Thank you.
