Series 2 of the BBC Radio 4 narrative comedy featuring Beauty Oolonga´s adventures as a care worker, starring Jocelyn Jee Esien. ‘Beauty of Britain’ breaks the embarrassed silence about what happens to us when we get old and start to lose our faculties. It shows the process in all its chaotic tragi-comedy but it does so from the point of view of a migrant worker, Beauty, whose Zimbabwean Shona background has taught her to respect age. Beauty sees Britain at its best, its worst and also sometimes without its clothes on running the wrong way down the M6 with a toy dog shouting ´Come on!´ In this second series, Beauty’s employer, the Featherdown Agency, sends her to provide care for those who need it - and some who don´t, but all of whom have relatives with guilty consciences. Beauty sees herself as an inspiration to other African girls hoping to live the dream in Britain. ´There are plenty of opportunities here. The professional classes are always off sick due to binge drinking and the rest are too lazy to get off the couch to answer the pizza delivery man.’ Jocelyn Jee Esien heads up a starry cast that includes Jenny Agutter, Felix Dexter, Pippa Haywood, Paterson Joseph, Julia Mackenzie, Felicity Montagu, Geoffrey Palmer and Clive Swift. Written by Christopher Douglas and Nicola Sanderson, it is produced by Tilusha Ghelani. The signature music ‘I Don´t Feel No Way Tired’ and all the music for the series was recorded with The West End Gospel Choir. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jocelyn Jee.

A BBC Radio 4 comedy by Christopher Douglas (´Ed Reardon´s Week´) and Nicola Sanderson originally broadcast in October and November 2009. Beauty Olonga works as a carer for the Featherdown Agency and sees herself as an inspiration to other African girls hoping to achieve their goals in the land of semi-skimmed milk. We see Britain through her eyes - its overheated houses, its disappointing church services and its over-fondness for cauliflower cheese. This complete first series contains the following episodes: ‘Seagulls over Sue Ryder’ - Beauty discovers the glories of Weston-super-Mare´s charity shops and experiences the disappointment of her first British funeral. ‘The Lord Lieutenant´s Lady’ - Beauty is caught between a warring couple, which is a good distraction from her disastrous crush on worship leader Wayne. ‘Girl with a Polycotton Tabard’ - Beauty wonders why so many British men get stuck in the emotional wilderness and find it hard to communicate with each other, as she deals with an elderly gentleman and his son. ‘Pastor Dave’ - Beauty is quite taken with the charismatic Pastor Dave, a visiting clergyman at Mrs Blanchard´s local church, but is he the real deal? ‘Colour Me Wow’ - Beauty has a particularly difficult client, but is distracted by her latest business venture. Lynette assures Beauty that ´Colour Me Wow´ is no pyramid scheme, while Anil shows a surprising new side to himself. ‘Beauty and the Beast’ - Beauty is looking after the elderly Mr Easterby, who has a new girlfriend and is behaving like a love-struck teenager. ‘Beauty of Britain’ stars Jocelyn Jee Esien as Beauty.

A brand-new spoof magazine show featuring semi-improvised interviews and sketches, all from the unique mind of award-winning, world-touring comedian Ross Noble. Over the course of the series, Ross introduces items from different bits of Britain: the best bits, the worst bits, the fascinating bits and the downright strange bits.Each episode sees him joined by a celebrity guest to talk about a fictional project that they are involved in: such as Fern Britton discussing her penchant for fighting animals, Kirsty Wark’s upcoming book Wark This Way: My Time with the Aerosmith Dudes and Lesley Joseph’s one woman show Lesley and Her Amazing Technicolor Life on Ice! Ross Noble’s ad libbed replies create a brilliantly off-kilter conversation that soon goes off in all sorts of directions. The interviews are interspersed with location reports from around Britain that take us on a journey into the mind of Ross Noble. Take a behind-the-scenes listen to the new spin-off musical about the poor bread merchant from whom Les Miserables’ Jean Valjean stole a loaf; discover the story of how one Yorkshireman’s low-gusset pants became a global rap phenomenon; learn how the British army are dealing with the problem of exploding toads on Salisbury Plain (and why the local squirrels might be more of a menace); and a special report from the highlight of most people’s calendars: The Birmingham Brass Festival.Written by and starring Ross Noble, with guest appearances from Fern Britton, Lesley Joseph, Nick Knowles and Kirsty Wark.
