The complete series 1-3 of the BBC Radio 4 narrative comedy featuring Beauty Oolonga's adventures as a care worker, starring Jocelyn Jee Esien. Beauty of Britain breaks the embarrassed silence about what happens to us when we get old and start to lose our faculties. It shows the process in all its chaotic tragi-comedy but it does so from the point of view of a migrant worker, Beauty, whose Zimbabwean Shona background has taught her to respect age. Beauty sees Britain at its best, its worst and also sometimes without its clothes on running the wrong way down the M6 with a toy dog shouting 'Come on!' In first series Beauty discovers the glories of Weston-super-Mare's charity shops, has a disastrous crush on worship leader Wayne and looks after the elderly Mr Easterby, who has a new girlfriend and is behaving like a love-struck teenager. In the second series, Beauty's employer, the Featherdown Agency, sends her to provide care for those who need it - and some who don't, but all of whom have relatives with guilty consciences. In the third and final series Beauty's mother pays her a visit, finds herself on the receiving end of a surprising proposal and wonders is Stephen, a charming English gent, is just like Hugh Grant in those movies. Jocelyn Jee Esien heads up a starry cast that includes Jenny Agutter, Felix Dexter, Pippa Haywood, Paterson Joseph, Julia Mackenzie, Felicity Montagu, Geoffrey Palmer and Clive Swift. Written by Christopher Douglas and Nicola Sanderson, Produced by Tilusha Ghelani.Show more
Born and bred in Dundee, Servant sees himself as a people's champion. His extraordinary self-belief stems largely from his dominant position in Dundee's notorious Cheeseburger Wars of the early 1980s - a period of riotous appreciation for the traditional American snack that caused madness on the streets and lined Servant's pockets. He continued his Midas touch in the 1990s by running what he often claims to have been the 'largest window cleaning round in Western Europe'. Now he's retired and, feeling purposeless and a little bored, he's taking on the internet spammers of the world. Playing the fraudsters at their own game, he soon has them in the palm of his hand. Starring Brian Cox as Bob Servant, with Felix Dexter, Laura Solon, Sanjeev Kohli and Lewis MacLeod.Show more
'This is the story of Mum's latest miracle - VIMS - and how it almost got me killed . . .' VIMS - the Virtual Interactive Mobile System - is the creation of Dominic's scientist mum. And it's amazing. An artificial intelligence masterpiece controlled by a single glove and a special pair of glasses, it can disarm a car bomb, search through underground pipes - or hold a baby . . . But then VIMS attacks violently and without warning, and Dominic realizes it is no longer a fantastic game. It's a dangerous reality.Show more
