    Miriam Margolyes and Alison Steadman star in the fourth BBC Radio 4 series of Sue Limb's wickedly funny parody of the Bloomsbury Group. This fourth series sees our arty, adulterous Bohemians struggling with the issues of class, money and how to become truly modern. Henry is concerned about Vera's dangerous susceptibility to romance, and her tendency to fascinate several women at once. In addition, he is wrestling with his biography of the king, misses the hurly burly of life at the Foreign Office and is tempted to stand for Parliament as a Labour MP.
