The Wilsons Save the World: Series 1 and 2: The BBC Radio 4 comedy

The Wilsons Save the World: Series 1 and 2: The BBC Radio 4 comedy

A full-cast BBC comedy about trying to live ethically and do the right thing written by Marcus Brigstocke and Sarah Morgan. Michael (Brigstocke) and Maxine (Kerry Godliman) Wilson and their teenage daughters, Lola and Cat (plus their bearded dragon Chomsky, and about 150,000 bees) have resolved to live a cleaner, greener, serener life. They are attempting to live ethically... whatever that means. The Wilsons conscientiously tackle tricky situations and dilemmas; from balancing the need of hot sun on holiday to a carbon-neutral campsite, explaining the pitfalls of online relationships to their daughter by drawing parallels to Brexit or protesting library closures when, according to Cat, everything can be found online anyway. The family, good folk that they are, are trying about 20% harder and learning to live with about 19% more failure in trying to save the world. They are not giving up. Produced by Julia McKenzie. A BBC Studios production.

God Collar

God Collar

Author: Marcus Brigstocke Narrator: Marcus Brigstocke Release Date: 01/06/2011

'There's probably no God ... but I wish there was. I've got some things I need to ask him.' Based on Marcus Brigstocke's award-winning Edinburgh and West End show, God Collar focuses on the 'God-shaped hole' that opens up in Marcus's life following the death of his best friend. Exploring his own issues surrounding faith - his lack of it, his need for it, some people's waste of it and what good purposes it might serve if he could get hold of it - he rails against the holy trinity of Abrahamic religions (Islam, Christianity and Judaism) while atheists, agnostics and believers of all faiths get it in the neck too. God Collar is a scathing look at modern faith that will leave you laughing out loud and examining your own beliefs in equal measure. 'As luck would have it, my relationship with God is as dysfunctional and peppered with resentment and recrimination as ever, so this should make for good writing.'

Giles Wemmbley Hogg Goes Off: Complete Series 3

Author: Graeme Garden, Jeremy Salsby, Marcus Brigstocke Narrator: Marcus Brigstocke Release Date: 01/07/2010

He's back! Budleigh Salterton's most famous citizen is off round the world on another five adventures. Meet Giles Wemmbley Hogg - 2 'm's, 2 'g's. Traveller, backpacker, ethnologist, fearless investigator of cultural diversity, and upper middle-class student ponce from Budleigh Salterton. And this time, Giles has graduated from University, with a first! He's actually the first person ever to have finished a course in Canadian Studies, and now he's on the job market and looking for anyone who'll have him. In these six episodes, with his trusty portable DAT and his Charterhouse rugby shirt, Giles tries his hand at the sort of jobs that only rich fathers' rich friends get for their idiot sons. Each week he travels to far-off foreign lands and joins the exotic world of work, and each week he makes a thumping great prat of himself! First he heads to an oil rig on the Cromarty Firth; then it's off to Japan where Giles tries out bond trading. Episode Three sees him being a most unlikely chalet girl in France; while in Episode Four he's leading a European ballet tour. Haiti is his destination in the fifth episode, where he experiments with voodoo, and in the final episode he heads to Ireland to find an old flame. Marcus Brigstocke stars as Giles, with Catherine Tate as Arabella. Guest stars include Jessica Hynes, Katy Brand and Miranda Hart.

Giles Wemmbley Hogg Goes Off: Complete Series 4

Author: Graeme Garden, Jeremy Salsby, Marcus Brigstocke Narrator: Marcus Brigstocke Release Date: 01/04/2010

Giles has been grounded! Budleigh Salterton's most famous citizen has been forced to stay at home by the Home Office - and his father. But something minor like that won't dent Giles's enthusiasm, so in this fourth series he sets up GWH Travvel ('two 'm's, two 'g's, two 'v's - bit of a mix up at the printers'). Run from his bedroom, GWH Travvel is a one-stop Travel/Advice/Events Management/Website service, which always stays true to its motto: 'we go there so you won't want to'. Helped by his ex-primary school teacher Mr Timmis, Giles advises people on how to pack a rucksack ('if in doubt, put it in. And double it'), and even helps someone find a zebra for a corporate promotion. Series highlights include going to Greece to rescue some GWH Travvel punters that he'd accidentally put in harm's way, an Agatha Christie-style septuagenarian hen night 'Murder on the Orient Express' and a Vegas Road Trip featuring a powerful Jacuzzi and some sparkly Germans. This complete BBC Radio 4 series co-stars Catherine Tate, with guest stars Celia Imrie, Alison Steadman and Morwenna Banks.
