  9. James and Brenda

    Thursday 25 October 2012, 17:27

    Keri Davies Keri Davies Web Producer, The Archers

    Brenda Tucker is far from delighted to have James Bellamy back in Ambridge, especially as he's recuperating in the Dower House, which also contains the Amside offices where she works.

    Because they have history...

    They first met in April 2005 when Brenda was 24 and James was 32. He was visiting...

  10. The Archers Timeline - updated

    Friday 6 January 2012, 14:50

    Keri Davies Keri Davies Web Producer, The Archers

    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...

  11. Jennifer's men

    Sunday 16 October 2011, 11:35

    Keri Davies Keri Davies Web Producer, The Archers

    It's very clear that Tony doesn't think much of his sister's choices when it comes to men. And it's true that Jennifer has had quite a chequered romantic career, from the Irish rover who left her pregnant to the predatory former husband.

    To help you judge for yourself, we've summarised Jennifer...

  12. Clive Horrobin - the horrible history

    Wednesday 5 October 2011, 19:13

    Keri Davies Keri Davies Web Producer, The Archers

    Ambridge's serial villain Clive Horrobin has returned, spreading ripples of unease like a cowpat chucked into a crystal pool.

    But as it's seven years since Clive was last seen in Ambridge (with charred foreams, being dragged away by police), we thought newer listeners might wonder what all the fuss...

  13. Peggy's stroke

    Friday 9 September 2011, 13:05

    Keri Davies Keri Davies Web Producer, The Archers

    Jack's stroke has brought back unpleasant memories of Peggy's stroke in 2008, which caused a lot of upset as the family tried to do what they thought was best for Jack.

    You can read the story (and many other storylines) via our Timeline page.

  14. Mousey - and The Archers archive

    Friday 2 September 2011, 12:05

    Keri Davies Keri Davies Web Producer, The Archers

    So Ruairi is regretting not taking 'Mousey' to his new boarding school. But who or what is Mousey?

    A search through our programme archive turned up details from the episode broadcast on 6 May 2007. Ruairi's mother Siobhan Hathaway, in the final stages of her illness, was desperate that Brian should...

    On her recent trip to Borchester, when she wasn't locating lost children Clarrie Grundy (Rosalind Adams, pictured) was buying birthday presents for father-in-law Joe and sister Rosie Mabbott.

  16. The Snells arrive in Ambridge

    Sunday 7 August 2011, 12:15

    Keri Davies Keri Davies Web Producer, The Archers

    Robert and Lynda are such a fixture on the landscape that it's hard to visualise a pre-Snell Ambridge. But it did exist. This storyline gives a few highlights from their first memorable year in the village.

    And here are Carole Boyd's memories of joining the programme - and how she put a rather different...

    Keri Davies Keri Davies Web Producer, The Archers

    So Jennifer's book club choice - Mistress of the Paddocks, by Borsetshire author Carinthia Hart - turned out to be a thinly disguised version of a supposed relationship between Jennifer's husband Brian and flame-haired Pony Club doyenne Mandy Beesborough.

    But what actually happened between Brian...

    Keri Davies Keri Davies Web Producer, The Archers

    As people in Ambridge fondly remember Sid Perks (except, perhaps, for Adam and Ian), we thought you might like to refresh your memory of this Ambridge stalwart.

    Here's his life story, from his days as a young tearaway to late-flowering romantic.

    With his recent thoughts on work experience, Daniel seems to be interested in following in the footsteps of his dead father Mark Hebden.

    We've written a brief life story of Shula's first husband: lawyer and cricketer Mark Hebden.
