All three series of David Nobbs’ museum-based sitcom, starring Julian Rhind-Tutt Rod Millet has always dreamed of working at the Maltby Collection, but on being appointed Deputy Curator of Painting and Sculpture, it quickly becomes clear that the son of a self-made biscuit mogul isn't going to fit into the musty, insular world of London antiquities. But when, on his first day, Rod learns that the museum has been earmarked for closure, he starts a campaign to save it (threatening his boss Walter Brindle’s plans for a cushy early retirement). With the collection’s future secured, the staff turn their energies towards romance. Rod competes with colleague Julian for the affections of the lovely Prunella, Walter makes a move on Susie Maltby, and there are wedding bells for several members of the team – but heartbreak for another. It’s time for the museum to get sexy too, as Rod drags it out of the past and towards a more modern future, with innovations such as Sunday opening (which does not run smoothly) and a children’s day (where the dog-counting competition gets a little out of hand). Director Walter also has his hands full, with warring curators, cleaners causing controversy, a dodgy alarm system and the prospect of making cuts – who will be for the chop? Created by comic genius David Nobbs, of Reginald Perrin fame, this warm, good-natured comedy stars Julian Rhind-Tutt as Rod, with Geoffrey Palmer as Walter, Ben Willbond as Julian, Rachel Atkins as Prunella and Margaret Cabourn-Smith as Susie. Guest stars include Hugh Dennis, Barry Cryer and Stephen K Amos.

Welcome to our Village Please Invade Carefully: Series 1 & 2 Audiobook

Welcome to our Village Please Invade Carefully: Series 1 & 2

Author: Eddie Robson Narrator: Hannah Murray, Hattie Morahan, Jan Francis, Julian Rhind-Tutt, Peter Davidson Release Date: December 2019

The Geonin have invaded. They have encircled the sleepy village of Cresdon Green with an impenetrable heat wave. Nothing comes in and nothing gets out. There are, however, no killings, lasers, or human torture - well, torture comes in myriad forms. The Geonin are, in fact, quite agreeable and led by their commander Uljabaan, are doing their very best to assimilate human culture. Their rather reasonable plan for world takeover is to start small (they've noticed that the all-at-once approach usually fails), learn about humankind, and use their knowledge to efficiently spread their dominion, bit by bit. Katrina Lyons, who was only visiting home to borrow some money from her parents, is appalled. Unfortunately almost everyone in the village, the two senior Lyons included, is too cowardly, apathetic, polite or stupid to stand up to this alien menace, so Katrina has no choice but to start the resistance movement herself. In the cricket pavilion. Join Katrina Lyons and co., and Uljabaan as they do battle across innumerable arenas of war; education programs to charity shops, the realms of loyalty cards to the ethereal world of social media. Who will fold first? And will the invasion become catastrophic in scale? Find out in Series 1 and 2 of Welcome to our Village, Please Invade Carefully. This delightful radio drama stars Julian Rhind-Tutt as Uljabaan, Hattie Morahan as Katrina Lyons, Jan Francis as Margaret Lyons, Peter Davison as Richard Lyons, Hannah Murray as Lucy Alexander, and John-Luke Roberts as Computer. Series 1 was broadcast in 2013 and Series 2 in 2014 Written by Eddie Robson Producer Ed Morrish A BBC Studios Production

Bird Island: The Complete Series 1-2 Audiobook

Bird Island: The Complete Series 1-2

Author: Katy Wix Narrator: Julian Rhind-Tutt, Katy Wix, Reece Shearsmith Release Date: November 2019

Ben, a young scientist working in the sub-Antarctic, tries to adapt to the loneliness by keeping a cheery audio diary on his Dictaphone. On the one hand, Ben is on the trip of a lifetime to Sub-Antarctica. On the other, he's trapped in an icy hell with one other person, a dodgy internet connection and a dictaphone. Loneliness is something of a problem. His fellow travelling scientist Graham should alleviate this, but the tragi-comic fact is, they are nerdy blokes, so they can only stumble through yet another awkward exchange. Ben experiences all the highs and lows that this beautiful, but lonely place has to offer but fails miserably to communicate this to Graham. So, Ben shares his thoughts with us in the form of an audio 'log'. Apart from his research studying the Albatross on the Island, Ben attempts to continue normal life with an earnestness and enthusiasm which is ultimately very endearing. We're with him as chats awkwardly with Graham, telephones his mother and as he tries to form a long distance relationship with a woman through Chemistry.com. In fact, we follow Ben as everything occurs to him. We also hear the pings and whirrs of machinery, the Squawks and screeches of the birds and the vast expanse outside. Oh, and ice. Lots of ice. Starring Reece Shearsmith and Julian Rhind-Tutt Written by Katy Wix Produced by Tilusha Ghelani
