Script by Rex Edwards
Friday's broadcast
After David's funeral - to which Jenny was unable to go - Gwen has decided she must return home. Bob has helped her tackle her financial problems at this difficult time. Dr. Dale has insisted Elvis must now leave Wells Road. Gwen's letter in The Advertiser about factory-farming has encouraged others to protest, including Mother Fisher.
