The Queen's Arms by ALAN BERRIE
The Queen's Arms pub has been going downhill ever since Sam and Marge took it over. It has only been saved from closure by the hard work and loyalty of its Irish barman, Denis. But the major political events of early 1982 herald great changes - for the country, the pub and Denis. Directed by ROBERT COOPER

Three short stories dramatised for radio by PETER MELLORS
1: The Hearty Optimist with Jonathan Cecil as Charles Lane
Johnson and Chippet find themselves short of money, so they set up a business to remove, 'without cruelty and for a fee', people who are boring or tiresome. Their first job is to deal with Charles Lane , an insufferable optimist who is persistently cheerful and refuses to be upset by anything. His wife and children find him rather unbearable!
Directed by WALTER ACOSTA
(First broadcast on the BBC World Service)
(Re-broadcast on Wed at 12.27pm) Stereo

Timetable of trouble:
8.0 am Toddler grabs flex of boiling kettle - severely scalded chest.
1.0 pm Harassed mother drops chip pan - fat splashes infant in baby walker.
3.0 Afternoon cuppa. Doorbell rings, child rushed to Burns Unit - skin grafting required.
