Higher: The Complete Series 1-4: A BBC Radio 4 comedy

Author: Joyce Bryant Narrator: , Jonathan Keeble, Mark Heap, Robert Daws, Sophie Thompson Release Date: October 2018

A BBC comedy drama set in the world of a 'pile 'em high university'. Karen Poynter is the new head of the Geography Department - renamed Geographical Tourism - at Hayborough University, which is definitely not part of the elite Russell Group of top universities. Ranked 132nd in the UK academic league table; if you have a pulse, you can have a degree. This is the high energy farce of the breeze block and grotty cafeteria, with all the endless meetings, the backstabbings and the sheer panic of a university setting. In an era of increasing fees and cutbacks, this satire has become all the more acute. Starring Sophie Thomson (Four Weddings and a Funeral, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt 1, Coronation Street) as Karen, with Jonathan Keeble (War and Peace) as the venal Dean. Episode list: Pilot show Partners Inspection The Price of Partnership Restructure Rebrand, Relaunch Clearing Privatisation, the Final Battle Year of the Rat Creative Solutions
