Enfield, West, Green

Harry Enfield is a comedian and sketch character actor whose creations have made a permanent mark on the nation's psyche and whose catchphrases have echoed around playgrounds and building sites for decades. His monstrous creations include the iconic 80s character Loadsamoney, Stavros the Kebab Shop Owner and Tory Boy. Harry had a bit of a punkish image as a youth, but in fact he's quite posh. So posh that Virginia Woolf once famously referred to his grandparents in a notorious letter to Lytton Strachey. To find out what it was she said about them, either listen in or you could always Google it yourself.

Lucie Green is a solar researcher based at the Mullard Space Science Laboratory, University College London's Department of Space and Climate Physics, a Bletchley-like stately pile tucked away in the Surrey countryside that houses 150 of Britain's top space scientists. She studies activity in the atmosphere of the Sun. She takes a strong interest in science education, and in 2009 was awarded the Royal Society's Kohn award for Excellence in Engaging the Public with Science.

Admiral Alan William John West, Baron West of Spithead GCB DSC PC once ran the entire Royal Navy. From June 2007 to May 2010, he was a Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State at the British Home Office with responsibility for Security and a Security Advisor to Prime Minister Gordon Brown. Prior to his ministerial appointment, he was First Sea Lord, the professional head of the Royal Navy, from 2002 to 2006. He has served aboard 14 ships, and in his first post as a captain, was the last to abandon ship as his vessel had been attacked by the Argentine Air Force during the Falklands war. As Head of Military Intelligence, he once had the honour of using a desk that played a unique role in history.

By David Nobbs

Gordon's hatred of noise is threatening his marriage. But will his attempts to foist silence on the world just make matters worse? Another great comic obsessive from the creator of Reginald Perrin.

Directed by Peter Kavanagh

A story that will resonate - or hopefully not! - with many R4 listeners

Gordon Flitch's life is bombarded with noise from every direction. But while his manic complaints about noise were hard enough for wife Alison (Doon Mackichan) to bear, his efforts to combat it really begin to grate!

For example, retreating to the silence of the Scottish Highlands, he decides on a whim to record the blissful noise-lessness to share with friends. This recording 'solution' quickly becomes a mania with him and Gordon sets about marketing silent CD's that can be played in pubs to spare oneself the raucousiness of pop music. He soon finds that he has hit a chord with the nation's consciousness. Gordon's fanatical obsession with silence has made him famous - but at what cost to his marriage?

Another cracking yarn from this top television, stage, film and now radio writer.
