    This six-part comedy series was first broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in 1988. Hosted by Stephen Fry, accompanied each week by Hugh Laurie, Jim Broadbent, Emma Thompson, and a selection of guests including Phyllida Law, Robert Bathurst, Julia Hills, and Alison Steadman, the show takes the form of a roundtable discussion, interspersed with sketches that veer tangentially from the sublime to the ridiculous.

    Nothing escaped the satirical eye of Britain's phenomenally successful, all-Asian sketch comedy show. So get your taste buds ready for the blandest dish on the menu in "Going for an English", prepare to let your heart pound at the Indian recreation of "Brief Encounter", and sing along to profound words of wisdom with "Fifty Ways to Leave Your Mother". Hilarious, irreverent, and barrier-breaking.

    Crabby, crusty, and curmudgeonly he may be, but Victor Meldrew, played brilliantly by Richard Wilson, voices the exasperation of the once silent majority. Accompanied by his long-suffering wife Margaret (Annette Crosbie), Victor's howlingly funny battles against what he perceives as modern-day ills have turned him into one of the great comic creations of our time. These four scripts were adapted for radio by One Foot in the Grave creator David Renwick and re-recorded by the cast.

    This is a dynamic, modern dramatisation of a classic book by John Wyndham. Bill Nighy ( Love Actually and many other films) and Sarah Parish ( Cutting It) play Richard and Janet, a couple caught up in the goings-on of a sleepy English village in which all the children have golden eyes, blond hair, and a sinister talent for telepathy and telekinesis. (Wyndham's novel was filmed as Village of the Damned in 1960 and 1995.)
