Brian Gulliver's Travels: The Complete Series 1 (BBC Radio 4: Comedy)

Brian Gulliver's Travels: The Complete Series 1 (BBC Radio 4: Comedy)

Author: Bill Dare Format: eBook Release Date: 01/01/1970

A BBC Radio 4 satirical comedy series about a seasoned presenter of travel documentaries, Brian Gulliver, who finds himself in a hospital's secure unit after claiming to have experienced a succession of bizarre adventures. Originally broadcast 21 February 2011 - 28 March 2011. 'Brian Gulliver's Travels' is a new adventure story from Bill Dare (producer of 'Spitting Image', 'Dead Ringers' and 'I've Never Seen Star Wars'). The series has attracted an excellent cast led by Neil Pearson ('Drop the Dead Donkey', 'Bridget Jones's Diary') and award winning star Mariah Gale (Ophelia in BBC TV's 2009 production of 'Hamlet'). We hear about Brian's travels in Gelbetia, a country run by doctors; Juradia, where every other person is a lawyer; Osminia, a land where marriage is outlawed; Sham, a country where alternative therapies abound; Erosia, which has a very different view of sexual politics; and Jampoa, where fame definitely equals fortune. In addition to Neil Pearson and Mariah Gale, the cast also includes Tamsin Greig, John Standing, Paul Bhattacharjee, Christopher Douglas, Catherine Shepherd, Vicky Pepperdine, Phil Cornwell, Antonia Campbell Hughes, Jo Bobin and Katherine Jakeways.
