Series 2

Catchment if You Can

Ronnie Corbett reunites with the writers of his hit sitcom Sorry, Ian Davidson and Peter Vincent. Sorry ran for seven series on BBC 1 and was number one in the UK ratings.

In the second series of their Radio 4 sitcom, Ronnie plays Sandy Hopper, who is growing old happily along with his dog Henry. His grown up children - both married to people Sandy doesn't approve of at all - would like him to move out of the family home so they can get their hands on their money earlier.

But Sandy's not having this. He's not moving until the dog dies. And not just that, how can he move if he's got a lodger? His daughter is convinced that his too attractive lodger Dolores (Liza Tarbuck) is after Sandy and his money.

Luckily, Sandy has three grandchildren and sometimes a friendly word, a kindly hand on the shoulder can really help a Granddad in the twenty-first century. Man and dog together face a complicated world. There's every chance they'll make it more so.

Sandy's quiet life is shattered by the need to make himself scarce while his daughter Ellie and his son-in-law Blake pretend, for reasons of social mobility and educational opportunity, that his address is their address. Hiding in the shed doesn't seem right for someone who dreams of being a hero. Not in the world's eye, perhaps - but certainly in his grandson Tyson's.

Ronnie Corbett ..... Sandy
Liza Tarbuck ...... Dolores
Sally Grace ..... Mrs Pompom

MON 06:00 The Mind of Mr JG Reeder (b0082gyz)
1, The Poetical Policeman

Mr JG Reeder has the mind of a criminal, using it to uncover the peculiar circumstances surrounding a bank robbery, the death of the night-watchman and the part in the plot played by his beautiful daughter.

This first of four stories provides useful insight into the past of Mr JG Reeder, whose novel methods bring the criminals of 1920s London to justice.

Read by David Horovitch.

Edgar Wallace is best known for his popular detective and suspense stories which earned him the title, "King of the Modern Thriller."

Although created at roughly the same time, Mr JG Reeder is the diametric opposite of Sam Spade, Philip Marlow and Mike Hammer. He is a shabbily dressed, diffident civil servant who prefers a cup of tea and a slice of seed cake to a shot of something stronger.

Reeder is a uniquely English detective. An apparent fuddy-duddy working in some obscure capacity in the Public Prosecutor's office, he actually has a razor-sharp intellect and is a super-sleuth. He solves his mysteries because he fully understands the "criminal mind".

Abridged for radio by Neville Teller.

Producer: Gemma Jenkins

Made for BBC Radio 7 and first broadcast in October 2007.

His grown up children - both married to people Sandy doesn't approve of at all - would like him to move out of the family home so they can get their hands on their money earlier. But Sandy's not having this. He's not moving until the dog dies.

Dolores, Sandy's lodger, has a moment of revelation - she really does feel guilty for always being behind with the rent and is going to leave and be a housekeeper to Mr McAhmed in Edinburgh. Sandy bows to the inevitable - and thus gets everything completely wrong. Will he have enough wit to pull the communication cord? Do they still have them?

Episode 5:
"Writer In Residence"

Radio 4's most curmudgeonly author is back for a new series, complete with his trusty companion Elgar, his pipe and his never ending capacity for scrimping and scraping at whatever scraps his agent, Ping, can offer him to keep body, mind and cat together.

Fed up with everything on the radio originating from Cambridge, Ed decides to immerse himself in popular culture and retunes away from Radio Four. The new outlook on the world that Radios 1, 2 and 5 bring to Ed proves fortuitous when his daughter, Eli, manages to secure him an interview at her husband's university. So it is that Ed finds himself 'Writer in residence' with all the benefits that this affords, including discussing the merits of the worst Lady Gaga wardrobe malfunction of the year.

Olivier Award-nominated Sahr Ngaujah is bringing the success of his Broadway performance to London's Sadler's Wells returning as the lead in FELA! The all singing production explores the extravagant world of Afrobeat legend and political activist Fela Kuti.

Have you ever stopped to think about how the design of a building affects you? Well Tom Dyckhoff, architecture critic and presenter has done just that. In his new Channel 4 series 'The Secret Life of Buildings' Tom discovers that the pure economics or mere aesthetics of buildings are far less important than the ways in which they influence our behaviour, feelings and wellbeing.

Unfortunately, Michael Simkins had to retire from playing cricket for the Harry Baldwin Occasionals this year but fortunately for Loose Ends this gave him time to write his new book The Last Flannelled Fool and talk to fellow cricket fan Arthur Smith about it. This is the story of his love of cricket, it's demise and his one-man odyssey around the country to take the temperature of the game.

Music from two newcomers with debut music to perform in the Loose Ends studio: Lucy Rose plays her single 'Middle Of The Bed'. And bringing some Brazilian rhythm, jazz and silky smooth vocals is Emily Saunders with the track Wishing Well from her debut album Cotton Skies.

Producer: Cathie Mahoney.

FRI 12:30 Chain Reaction (b012r9b1)
Series 7

Rhys Thomas talks to Simon Day

Chain Reaction is Radio 4's tag-team interview show. Each week, a figure from the world of entertainment chooses another to interview; the next week, the interviewee turns interviewer, and they in turn pass the baton on to someone else - creating a 'chain' throughout the series.

This seventh series starts with Rhys Thomas - perhaps better-known to the Radio 4 audience as Gary Bellamy, host of Down The Line - interviewing the actor Simon Day. They have worked together since The Fast Show, when Simon was an established member of the team, and Rhys was a supporting cast member; Simon also appeared in the sitcom Swiss Toni, which Rhys co-wrote, and provides voices for Down The Line. But Simon, sixteen years older than Rhys, came to prominence in a very different comedy culture to Rhys. He also came from a live background, as opposed to Rhys's first break working as a runner on Shooting Stars; he also waited until this year to have his own show (Radio 4's The Simon Day Show), whereas Rhys had written two series of his own sitcom by the age of 21. All these differences, and all this common ground, makes for an absorbing and hilarious interview.
