Grey Gables is bankrupt. No residents left at the Laurels. Justin has succumbed to the virus leaving Lilian a very wealthy woman. Adam is fretting about fruit pickers. Jenny is holding dinner parties. Susan is obsessive about the shop and sanitizing everything. The Bull is doing takeaway meals. Brookfield hasn't noticed the virus and farming is going on as usual.
So did anybody listen? I didn't but will probably give it a go tomorrow.
I was sitting here, minding my own business, listening to the Archers,and suddenly it was 11 O'clock.
Yes I did Listen, but there were two Monologues - each taking a turn ., I won't say much if you intend to hear it youself tomorrow, But Basically Daveeeed Whinging about Joss (I think it was Joss, I can't tell which son it was ... Possibly He was using the Wrong Duvet to soundproof his home Studio..... ). And Joss whinging about his Dad...
There Must be a BSI Standard Spec for Family Whinges.
Well I've listened. Not terribly impressed though it wasn't so bad that I turned off. I thought the David/Josh one was better than the other one, despite Tracey who I like. I don't think this format is sustainable for very long - a week or so maybe - so I hope they think of ways to get people talking to each other. I really don't want to hear the contents of everybody in Ambridge's head!
Yes I must admit, I´ve been quite surprised to see "behind the scenes" of the actors´ makeshift recording studios -basically them cloaked in old quilts to muffle out sounds etc. Somehow I imagined that established radio actors would have something more sophisticated to hand?
And that the BBC could at least blend recordings together so that we might get a semblance of a scene with more than one character at a time!
It does, although it's rather stilted. But the tech blokes could sort that out. Just joining little monologues represent very little challenge, but we're supposed to be lost in admiration of their genius.
It's bad enough listening usually when they are talking to each other without the words passing through their brains but hearing what is sloshing around in there, supposedly passing for their deepest thoughts, is not good at all.
