Radio Drama: Little Bexham

Have Your Say: Little Bexham
Radio Norfolk's first drama has gone to air after months of preparation, with scripts being written and re-written, plot lines being refined and a casting call going out to budding actors. Now, we want to know how it's been received by the critics.
A year ago BBC Radio Norfolk presenter Roy Waller and producer Amy Barratt had a bud of an idea: to make the station's first audio drama.
They just had to find out how to make it blossom - but bit by bit Little Bexham started to flower.
Norfolk writer Sue Welfare agreed to pen the scripts for the 16-part series, the characters were decided, a casting call went out to the county's keen actors and then the auditions started.
"Little Bexham is about Norfolk life today. What it's like to live in a village, in a small town. It's also about the people you know, it's about your friends and it's about you. I hope that people will look at it and think that Norfolk life is interesting," said Sue.
After the actors were picked it was time to get in the studio to bring Sue's scripts to life, with the station's Technical Bob overseeing the drama's sound design and production.
On Tuesday, 30 October, 2007 Little Bexham was revealed - and now we want to find out how the drama is being received by our critics - you, the listener.
Your comments might be as scathing as the X-Factor's Simon Cowell or as soothing as Strictly Come Dancing's Len Goodman - but as long as they're honest and considered we'll publish them below.
They must only relate to Little Bexham, and not to Radio Norfolk in general. These can be posted on our main messageboard.
When adding your name, we'd also like to know where you're writing from. So if you could put in your name, village or town, ahead of your comment it would be much appreciated.
Little Bexham will be broadcast on BBC Radio Norfolk on Tuesday and Thursdays at 1.30pm, with an omnibus edition on Sundays at 1.45pm. The final episode of the series is broadcast on Tuesday, 27 November, 2007.
