Duration: 13 minutes

First broadcast: on BBC Radio 4 FMLatest broadcast: on BBC Radio 4 LW

Roy buys chocolates for Phoebe, who is still at Home Farm. Roy's sure that Phoebe will want to spend Christmas with Hayley and Abbie and so he's agreed to work on Christmas Day.

Jennifer can't make the SAVE meeting this evening so Jim brings her up to date with the traffic census. It looks like traffic has actually reduced, but they need to do an overnight survey to confirm it.

Roy asks Jennifer to persuade Phoebe to come home but Jennifer doesn't think she can. It's clear that Phoebe wants to be at Home Farm. Roy needs to be patient.

Tom is shocked to see Tony in hospital. He thought he was prepared but Tony looks so old. Emotional Tom opens up to a silent Tony. He's sorry for how he behaved and for leaving Tony to pick up the mess. Tom vows to make his dad proud, to be a good son and farmer, just like Tony.

Peggy thinks that seeing Tom must have been a tonic for Tony. She feels guilty. Tony went into beef to prove a point after the upset over her will. Peggy is delighted when Tom says he's back for good.

Helen has worrying news. Tony has to have a tracheostomy. Every time there's improvement, something else goes wrong. Where will it all end? Show less
