SKETCHES BY BOZ

Today BBC Radio 4 Extra has just started a series of repeats of the ten SKETCHES BY BOX dramatisations I did back in the late 90s. The first is The Tuggses at Ramsgate and it's available for another 29 days.

They all have wonderful casts and sparkling direction by Sally Avens. One of my favourite projects.

MONSIGNOR QUIXOTE

A lovely week in studio with Monsignor Quixote directed by Marc Beeby and starring Bernard Cribbins and Philip Jackson. Bernard, aged 87, was an inspiration to us all with his energy and professionalism. He even spotted typos in the scripts which Marc and I had missed. The dramatisation will be on Radio 4 in August. And here for anybody who's never heard it is Bernard singing Hole in the Ground.

 Monsignor Quixote will be broadcast on Radio 4 in August.
