The Archers is the BBC’s longest-running serial, much loved by millions of fans who weave its story-lines and characters into the fabric of their own lives. When major crises occur, like the death of Nigel Pargeter, the audience is in uproar. In the last year, the serial – under its new editor – has provoked much comment from listeners about dramatic stories, character changes and especially the possible move of the Archer family from Brookfield Farm.

In this lively and light-hearted discussion, one of the main characters, David Archer (Tim Bentinck) and two of the show’s scriptwriters, Mary Cutler and Keri Davies, will discuss the serial’s popularity, how they feel about the saga, and how they deal with the passions and prejudices of its fans. Also joining the discussion is Archers fan and award-winning author Helen Dunmore. Chaired by Helen Taylor, there will be lots of time for audience questions and participation.
