Subject: BS: The Archers - time to turn off.

Alright, I've sat through years of gross, class-ridden story-lines, revolting snobbish characters, appalling scripts written by someone who appears never to talk to real people, and the worst acting of any soap since Crossroads (the award this week goes to Elizabeth, Helen and David), but this is the final straw – the unspeakable Charlie Windsor's equally unspeakable missus is about to make an appearance, with all the attendant sycophantic arse-licking. If this is a ploy to increase the audience, it hasn't worked with this long-time listener. I'm reaching for the 'off' switch before I puke or kick in the radio.

Chill out, man!
You can take a twelve year break from listening to the Archers, and still catch up in a single episode.
Having lived for ten years in Borsetshire (or the real world equivalent) I find the class divide pretty realistic. I've been in a pub full of grumbling Grundys, and a restaurant full of Elizabeths and Nigels, talking at 90dB about horses.
I've even seen the various Royals drive past my window.
That's the way it is.
It will be the same in a couple of years. Just take a break, it will all be over by Easter.
Cheers
Dave

No they can't turn it off, that is the only time on Sunday morning that I can take time out and tune into the omnibus program and escape. A few of the characters might be snobbish but as I am unlikely to come into contact with any of them in my 'real' world it is no problem. I am not a completely devoted follower not missing a single episode but if I do miss any it doesn't take long to catch up with what's been going on which is great.

Thank you, John, for that incontinent and incomprehensible rant. Personally, I don't give a shit what the so-called 'Royals' or their apologists like you think. I just don't like it when their PR machine uses their influence to further ruin a programme paid for by licence-payers.

Just heard some good news, though - I can start watching Gardener's World again now that they're getting rid of the awful Tony Buckland and Irritating Alice (sorry, Alys)and bringing back lovely Monty Don and Carol Klein. Hurray!

Right, off to see what's new on the 'Rebublic' website.

How about a folk programme?   Then I could dive to switch on at 7.00pm, rather than off as at present.

OK, I know Radio4 is supposed to be a speech station, but it is also supposed to be the quality station. I reckon a couple of tracks and a few minutes background from someone knowledgeable (c'mon Lester, it is made for you) could make a formula that might bring in a convert or two, cost very little, and still fit the time-slot.

2 p.m. Listen With Mother - it always used to be at 1.45, followed by Woman's Hour at 2 o'clock.

Children's Favourites was a must on Saturday morning - 'Uncle Mac', who presented it (Derek McCullough) was in reality a grumpy old sod who wasn't very keen on kids! ToyTown was also a must and I still quote Dennis the Dachshund's very severe "It oughtn't to be allowed" on special occasions.

As for Mrs. Dale, when Ellis Powell - the first Mrs. Dale - died, she was replaced by Jessie Matthews, who was very glamorous even then. In fact, my little Radio Buffs, Mrs. Dale's Diary was the first broadcast programme on radio or TV to have a gay man as a character. Quite something in those days.

How can anyone suggest that The Archers should go when things are getting so mightily interesting? We've had Lizzie simpering this week that she tried to persuade the virtually-beatified-already Nigel not to go on that roof, and here's Guilty Dave bending over backwards to such an extent that he's not only disappearing up his own arse but he's also severely threatening, owing to sheer neglect, his own marriage to Ruth (Er, ner!!). Not that that would be much of a loss, of course. Possibly even a gain. But we all know that Guilty Dave actually encouraged Nige on to that roof, don't we? "C'mon, Nigel, are you a man or a mouse," remember? Either Guilty Dave will blurt it out to Lizzie pretty soon, or, much worse for him, a witness to that fateful remark will blurt it out (I'm guessing Freddie, or even Titcombe, who might at last find his tongue). It was a dark night, after all, and who knows who might have been listening? Give it two more weeks. You won't regret it.

Hey, I wasn't saying get rid of The Archers - just that it irritates me so much that I can't bear to listen to it at the moment. The worst thing is the terrible, stilted script that sounds more like a Jane Austen spoof or an ageing school teacher giving a lesson on how one speaks the Queen's English(enunciate, boy, enunciate!). Nobody (well nobody I know) actually speaks like that. It's especially cringe-making when he/she tries to make the kids sound 'hip'. A few lessons from the Corrie writers would work wonders. Might tune in again in 10 years' time.

And as for Mrs Dale's Diary - it was never the same when they updated it and renamed it The Dales. Right, off to hunt for some recordings of Journey Into Space.

All this talk of The Archers and Folk - and no mention of the national outrage caused when they updated the old Barwick Green Maypole Dance with a fuzz-folk rock cover version by Mudcat favourites Steeleye Span. I think it lasted a week before they changed it back. I believe The Abbots Bromley Horn Dancers often use Barwick Green, and have been doing so since time immemorial (pre-1954 revival anyway) though I once had a dream of them dancing in slow motion to Sailing By.

No matter how wired, sweaty, tired or ready for home we might be - lo! it's the Shipping Forecast and "Sailing By" drifts into the car - all is calm, all is peaceful. A great piece of music.

Somewhere I've got a digitised copy of the Book at Bedtime adaptation of Vivian Stanshall's Sir Henry at Rawlinson End Peel sessions broadcast over Xmas week around 1997 (?) featuring various edits of Sailing By, though they eschew it one night for a choral rendering of I Saw Three Ships. Alongside side such classics as Viv's Peristaltic Waves (featuring Danny Thompson & John Kirkpatrick) it's a surreal listening experience second to none...

I see what you mean theleveller, I have noticed that the 'hipness' of most of the younger members of the cast does sound embarrasingly exaggerated at times so much so it sounds like they have all come straight out of stage school and as you say the script lately has become stilted. Perhaps that is why I am not as bothered as I used to be about missing a few episodes.

I often wonder what the audiences are for Radio Four in general. Minority programming for the elite stratas of upper-middle class England, exemplified by a kid's show we caught once in the car one Sunday afternoon (Go For It! - more embarrasing cool with an over-ethusiastic presenter who called everyone guys) in which Jack and Chloe (11 & 12 respectively though both sounding 20 years older at least) had just got back from a 6-week field-trip to the Amazon, probably on their own as an excercise in confidence building. Talk about surreal.

A couple of summers ago whilst browsing in a Norwich antiquarian bookshop off Tombland (seeking out M R James's book on Norfolk Churches if you must know) I was chuckling over an episode of Just A Minute which the shop keeper was listening to as he attended to his crossword. It was only after I'd left the shop (empty handed) that I realised it couldn't have been R4 because Kenneth Williams was one of the guests. Or maybe it was - and in that rarefied atmosphere I caught an echo of something ectoplasmic in the ether. Oo-er.

The sadly troubled, and sublimely funny Kenneth Williams, was often to be found on Radio 4.
Why is it suggested that Radio 4 is middle class, maybe because it's a speech based channel, and doesn't go in for the poptrank of so many other channels.
After all the last thing we need in this world of the nanosecond attention span, is something to stimulate the brain of the listener, is it?

I am seriously peed off about the fact that Classic FM are always playing Sailing By at all hours of the day. That piece belongs to one time of the day only.

Don't even mention Classic FM to me. They've reduced classical music to the equivalent of sitting in a bath of warm, soapy suds - no challenges and hardly anything played all the way through. The programmers appeal to the masses and choose the softest, cuddliest, least difficult music, over and over again. Try listening all day for a week and you'll hear the same stuff ad nauseam. Still, appeal to the majority and rake in the advertising dosh, eh?

Thank God for Radio 7. I've been listening to The Men From The Ministry and had forgotten how funny the pre-'70s episodes were. And 'Forbidden Planet' OOOooo-er! Scary!

A bit of a shame that the new R4 controller and her cruel henchmen are about to change it's target audience again. Apparently, there are far too many white, old, middle-class parasites listening, so they are going to appeal more to young people. And R7 is going to be a R4 'take-up' channel.

Ah, well, my main fix is Radio 3. But don't knock Classic FM too hard. Yes, they specialise in bleeding chunks and inane adverts but they do play complete works in the evening, and they're not always the old familiar stuff. If you're in your S-reg Ford Fiesta bombing down the A30 at 85, you've forgotten your CD case, Radio 3 is doing Stockhausen as Composer Of The Week and there's You and Yours on Radio 4, then Classic FM can occasionally come to the rescue. Apart from the bleeding chunks issue, I carry two grievances against Classic FM. First, they think Elgar's Cello Concerto is good music. Second, that awful, crude compression they apply which makes a flute sound as loud as the rest of the massed forces of the Berlin Phil put together. Mind you, at least you can hear that flute in the Fiesta.

It really is perfectly possible to drive down the A30 without listening to the radio, or a CD, or anything else other than the sound of the vehicle. It's not something dangerous that you might need to be rescued from. (Or if it really does terrify you, you could always sing.)

Prince Charles is a good lad at heart..and he's done a great deal to help others. I've put loads of links into some of the charities he runs..Yup, he's a Royal, but he's one who cares about the planet and he's got a bigger dose of spirituality than the rest of 'em put together...

He's the one who promoted organic farming, long before it became fashionable. He's helped thousands start their own businesses, with his Princes Trust, changed many lives for the better in doing so. He cares about the biodiversity of the planet, about people living in lovely surroundings, because he knows that ugly, desolate buildings/housing breed angry minds, so often..

Camilla leaves me pretty cold to be honest, but she's done a great deal for osteoparosis, which her Mum suffered from, and I think she now does too.

At least they're happy together, and I wouldn't wish them ill for that reason, or for doing The Archers. I never listen to it anyway...find it all pretentious twaddle.

Monty Don, by the way, is the most beautiful writer. I've a book, somewhere, of the various articles he's written for newspapers over the years and they're all so evocative and filled with colourful images of beauty and nature..images created from his words, not photos. I marvelled at the way he writes...lovely man...very posh though, levels...are you SURE you like him????? ;0)
