This week, in a small Devon town, Melanie Anderson is at the centre of a conflict over the way she does her job as a traffic warden; Jo Bird finds that tracking down farmers who block public footpaths involves a jungle trek; and salesman Dave McCann reveals some tricks of his necessary trade. Whether funny, angry or sad, the programme allows you to speak in the mobile studio, the Vox Box.

Eight writers journey along some of the world's most critical frontiers.
Long Division. Theatre director and writer Ronald Eyre , who comes from Yorkshire, follows the route of the United Kingdom's own land frontier with the Republic of Ireland. The line which winds its way through beautiful lakes and fields is also the graveyard of people and hope. He seeks out people who are trying to make normal lives out of an abnormal situation: the farmer who has to travel ten miles to reach a field
100 yards away; the vicar whose congregation has been decimated by violence; the smuggler who lived in the south in a house owned by the British government. His verdict: what a waste.
