They live in a world of church fetes and amateur dramatics, but love nothing more than dipping their pens in the vitriol pot - while remaining the firmest of pen-pals.

BBC Radio Program Comes To Audible

This is the entertaining first episode of the Woman's Hour Serial. Scales and Rutledge are terrific as always and the timing is perfect. The recording is fast paced letter reading that is hilarious in spots and hints at quirky action that happens between the lines and between the letters over time.

I've checked to see if the BBC is rerunning these programs and it seems that Audible is the only way to hear future programs. My suggestion is not to use a credit here--as they are too cheap for that. Instead wait until a sale and pay with cash or a free coupon. I enjoyed this as a quick and light bit of silliness. Funny.
