Sara Thornton, BBC forecaster, joined our hosts this week; well to be accurate she joined Roifield to discuss weather forecasting – it transpires that our resident cartographer can define an isobar! Sara has been a forecaster for 15 years but an even longer Archers listener.
Sara finds the callers are good at highlighting and reminding her of the Ambridge events and having been an expatriate shares sympathies with Jan from Can!
Kosmo says he is not totally against issues but feels they should be driven by the characters (as Bethany would have done had she remained) rather than being generated with listener manipulation as with Rob (and to a lesser extent Maxine).
Lots of great calls – stick to two minutes before Sunday tea time and you have a better chance of making the cut in future.
On this week’s episode we have calls from
Steve who has plans for Anna Toboggan,
Aunty Jean who’s going to kill Shula,
Kevin who’s frustrated,
Maeve who’s clearing the decks for the trial,
Paul who’s worried for Charlotte,
Witherspoon who’s cautiously optimistic
Blithe Spirit who wants a word with Freddie
