A Whole 'Nother Story: Complete series 1-3: A BBC Radio 4 comedy drama

Author: Amanda Murphy Narrator: Anne Reid, Dave Lamb, Debra Stephenson, Paula Wilcox, Shaun Dooley Release Date: 01/08/2021

All 14 episodes of Amanda Murphy's sitcom about the will-they-won't-they romance between best friends Cassie and Pete Cassie's 30, single, and miserable. All her friends are getting married - even Ugly Paula (albeit to someone on a life sentence in a Kentucky prison) but nobody loves her. Except for Pete. And he's her best mate, so he doesn't count... or does he? Over the course of three series, we follow Cassie and Pete as they attempt to answer that critical question, and sort out their complicated feelings for each other. Joining a dating agency, they begin to suspect that they could be each other's perfect match - but it's only when they both start seeing other people that they realise how much they really mean to each other. Should they risk their lifelong friendship to take a chance on love? Just as Cassie's finally listening to her heart, Pete's new relationship gets serious - and when he's free and single, she's coupled up. Are they fated to remain just good friends, or can they overcome the obstacles in their way and find their happy-ever-after? Debra Stephenson (Spitting Image, Dead Ringers) stars as Cassie in this funny and relatable comedy drama, with Dave Lamb (Come Dine with Me) as Pete, and a stellar supporting cast including Brendon Burns, Shaun Dooley, Anne Reid, Mike Grady and Paula Wilcox.

Mr Larkin's Awkward Day: A Sony Radio Academy Award-Winning Play

Mr Larkin's Awkward Day: A Sony Radio Academy Award-Winning Play

Author: Chris Harrald Narrator: Adrian Scarborough, Anne Reid, Lynne Verrall Release Date: 01/10/2010

Chris Harrald's Sony Radio Academy Award-winning play takes a light-hearted look at a chaotic day in the life of an emerging poet. One morning in September 1957, Philip Larkin receives a very official looking letter which sends him into a spin. The events that unfold provide a delicious insight into Philip's character, with a tremendous sense of period. The Sony Gold citation said: 'Assured direction, excellent performances and concise, skilfully-researched writing all made this deceptively straightforward story a masterpiece. Funny and touching by turns, a single, seemingly insignificant incident in the life of Philip Larkin brought out the humanity and humour of a poet whose personal life is not commonly associated with either.' Starring Adrian Scarborough as Philip Larkin with a cast including Anne Reid, Lynne Verrall, Stephen Critchlow and Chris Pavlo.
