But First This - A Musical Homage to Radio 4 archiveAlong with the countryside, the monarchy and freedom of speech, Radio 4 is in the top seven "Best Things About Britain Today", according to a recent poll. But a new Controller is out to destroy this cherished institution! Can the intrepid team of presenters foil her wicked plan? Written by BBC newsreader Kathy Clugston with music by Desmond O'Connor, But First This is a witty and lovingly irreverent new musical set in the world of Woman's Hour, The Shipping Forecast, The Today Programme, Big Ben and, of course, the Pips. Just a Minute, make sure you're on the Front Row, Today, Saturday Live or Midweek, not at Broadcasting House but at The Watermill Theatre. It's guaranteed to be livelier than Book at Bedtime. Warning: an in-depth knowledge of Farming Today may be required!
Performers Michael Fenton Stevens (John Humphrys), Louise Plowright (Selina), Helena Blackman (Anna), Neil Ditt (Will), Jonathan Dryuden Taylor (Jim), James Beal (piano).
