Well, it's all happened tonight. My word yes. Tonight's edition finished eight minutes ago.

The Archers 60th anniversary: Apocalypse Ambridge isn't the script.

Oh - the Oo-Ar bit, for those who don't know the area...

Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, Ruby! Oo-ar, oo-ar, oo-ar!

They've been Local Heros, those guys, since lord knows when. They were young when they started.

For those who missed it and don't mind spoilers, Hellin got whisked in for a Cesarean and Nigel looks like he's about to spend the next sixty years in a wheelchair.

Of Hellin it is often asked these days whether one can get a babyseat for a broomstick.

Nigel deserves every minute of what's coming to him, brainless bloody toff.

Cognoscenti might wonder why anyone ever marries Shula or Elizabeth, since the only subsequent thing worse than death is survival.

Just occasionally the Newsgroups provide a perfect moment. This was posted a few minutes before the broadcast started...

I seem to be pushing this thread entirely on my own for some reason.

The 'Reason'? everybody knows who or what The Archers are, but nobody listens anymore, or very few compared to the glory days.

Dame Myra Hess, that was her. How many television sets do you think the country possessed back then, with only one channel available?

I did watch a little TV this morning, I saw what I take to have been several American music artists who rather impressed me. Cee-Lo Green was one of them; once he relaxed he sang very effectively though he gave the appearance of someone academy-trained rather than dragged screaming out of the Sprawl though I may of course be misreading his presentation. And Vampire Weekend. Very proper.
