Concrete Cow: The Complete Series 1 and 2

Author: James Cary Narrator: Chris Pavlo, Olivia Colman, Robert Webb, Sally Hawkins, Steven Kynman Release Date: October 2019

All twelve episodes of the BBC Radio 4 sketch show starring Robert Webb and friends Welcome to Concrete Cow, the sketch show where anything is possible. Written by James Cary, who won a Silver Sony Award for Think the Unthinkable, this silly, surreal and ingenious comedy stars one half of 'Mitchell and Webb', Robert Webb. Also featuring are Oscar-winning actress and comedian Olivia Colman, as well as Sally Hawkins, Chris Pavlo, Beth Chalmers and more. Highlights include Narnia being vandalised by two kids from Peckham, temping for NASA, Batman's schedule, the theft of Hitler's jewels, and the consequences of a murder mystery party that goes a little too far. Plus, King Midas is not sure whether life is as good as gold, Sherlock Holmes plays Cluedo, Alan Turing needs IT support and a war poet is told that the troops prefer limericks. We also learn the real reason Columbus sailed round the world, discover the truth behind laser eye surgery, and get a taste of Radio 4's new quiz show, I Think You'll Find, consisting of 'half an hour of excessive pedantry and nit-picking (first round: split infinitives)'.

When Lioba Fielding dies in the real world, her boyfriend John Armstrong downloads himself into Planet B in an attempt to find her avatar. As he travels between various worlds he becomes entangled in an array of strange scenarios, teleporting from each adventure to the next with his companion Medley, a 'rogue avatar' who has no human controller. All the while, John and Medley are being watched by a dog-like antivirus programme called Cerberus who, along with the Planet B Corporation, considers the rogues to be a computer virus that need to be wiped out. But John soon begins to believe that Lioba may still be alive somewhere in Planet B, and that the games he is playing may be more real and deadly than he first thought. 'Matthew Broughton's tale of a malfunctioning virtual world is engrossing' - The Stage Cast: Planet B...Adjoah Andoh John Armstong...Gunnar Cauthery Lioba Fielding...Donnla Hughes/Tessa Nicholson Medley...Lizzy Watts/Claire Harry Cerberus...Chris Pavlo Kip Berenger...Joseph Cohen-Cole/Lloyd Thomas Lead writer: Matthew Broughton Producer: Jessica Dromgoole Script Editor: James Robinson

A Darker Shade of Blue Audiobook

A Darker Shade of Blue

From the killing fields of the East Midlands to the mean streets of London, from the jazz clubs and clip joints of Soho to the barren fenlands of East Anglia, this is a world of broken families and run-down estates, revenge killings and prostitution, drugs, guns and corruption; a world of overstretched police forces and underpaid detectives, men and women who strive nonetheless for a kind of justice; a world in which everything, even friendship, has a price.

Mr Luby's Fear of Heaven (BBC Radio 4: Afternoon Play) Audiobook

Mr Luby's Fear of Heaven (BBC Radio 4: Afternoon Play)

When Lewis Luby (Jeremy Irons) comes to, late at night in an Italian hospital, he finds himself lying under the monstrous big toe of God. Surely there has been some mistake: Luby, who has never for one moment believed in the immortality of the soul, cannot possibly be in heaven! John Mortimer had the idea for 'Mr Luby's Fear of Heaven' when he first visited the Santa Maria della Scala hospital in Siena and saw patients lying in beds under ceilings decorated with 15th-Century frescoes depicting Heaven and Hell. The play was first produced for BBC Radio 3 in 1976, with John Gielgud in the title role. Later that year it was presented on stage as part of a double bill 'Heaven and Hell', with Denholm Elliot as Luby. This BBC Radio 4 'Afternoon Play' production, starring Jeremy Irons as the protagonist, was first broadcast 31 December 2008 and repeated 15 February 2011. Stephen Critchlow, Marsha Fitzalan, Chris Pavlo, Donnla Hughes, Dan Starkey and Flaminia Cinque also feature amongst the cast.

My Name is Iqbal Masih (BBC Radio 4: Afternoon Play) Audiobook

My Name is Iqbal Masih (BBC Radio 4: Afternoon Play)

A BBC Radio 4 full-cast drama about a young Pakistani boy forced into bonded labour in a carpet factory at the age of four, and who became a figurehead for the Bonded Liberation Movement aged eleven. Originally broadcast as the 'Afternoon Play' on 25 February 2009, and repeated on 18 January 2011. Despite the valiant efforts of many, there are still thousands of child labourers in factories across Asia - often working long hours in terrible conditions to provide cheap clothing and other goods for our high street stores. This play, the extraordinary and moving story of Iqbal Masih, brings to the foreground one of the less savoury elements of an increasingly global economy, and contributes to the continuing debate about our wider responsibilities as consumers. It also celebrates the tragically short life of a remarkable individual. 'My Name is Iqbal Masih' won the 2009 Clarion Radio Drama Award, and stars Sagar Radia in the title role, with Bhasker Patel as Khan, Kaleem Janjua as the carpet master and Manjeet Mann as Inayat. Also featured amongst the cast are Inam Mirza, Gagan Sharma, Janice Acquah, Chris Pavlo and Saikat Ahamed.
