    Home Farm is in trouble this week, as Brian's charm offensive has fallen flat. Most listeners think his plans for the mega-dairy should be shelved and Adam's warned to watch his back after his views about the dairy were broadcast on Radio Borchester.

    Jennifer's trip to the community shop had some...

    There's plenty to get hot under the collar about this past week - Pip's new ideas for Brookfield for a start, but a few think her heart's in the right place.

    As Ambridge is blighted by the phone and broadband outage, the Dunkirk spirit hit the message board with listeners rallying round. There...

    Is Tracy Horrobin out-manipulating Susan? Will Debbie and Brian get the mega dairy off the ground or will they be scuppered by adverse publicity?

    Is Tony heading for a health scare, and as the new Grundys arrive home, what will Emma think of "Casa Nueva" being consigned to history?

    Here's my...

  4. NVZs and the slurry lagoon

    David and Ruth Archer can curse their bad luck in finding that badgers have damaged their slurry pit (or 'lagoon'). But they are by no means the only farmers having to fork out substantial sums in order to comply with the Government's latest Nitrate Vulnerable Zones (NVZ) regulations.

    As Ambridge saw in 2012, Will and Nic tied the knot. Whilst some admitted to shedding a tear at their special day, others wondered if the marriage would last and whether Caroline's cake deception was "shameful".

    There's also been talk of Debbie's frosty chat with Elizabeth at the pantomime; Tom...

    We've updated The Archers Timeline with the main events from 2011. It's been a busy year, beginning with Nigel's death - and of course Henry's birth - and closing with the emotional upheaval caused by the discovery of John's son Rich.

    Along the way Ambridge was visited by royalty and by a rather...

  7. "I'd like Tarm to be slowly barbequed and then fed to his pigs" - listener discussions to 28 December 2011

    It's Christmas! We've had applause for Jazzer's singing at Lynda's Christmas Around the World cabaret, and boos for Tom and Helen and their selfish attitudes. There's a pint of Shires for Tony for saying what everyone was thinking, and a large vodka for Tracy for giving young Ruairi a selection box...

    As Will and Nic jet off to their honeymoon in Cape Verde, we thought you might like to see a couple of photos of them in their 'going away' outfits.

    Our thanks to Becky Wright and Phil Molloy for posing in very cold conditions. Well, if they will choose to get married on New Year's Day...
