Providence and the Butler

Episode 3 of 3

15 minutes
First broadcast:
Thursday 21 May 2009

This cannily observant early P.G. Wodehouse story was lost for 99 years, now recently discovered. It has some classic "Plum" ingredients: an eccentric Earl, an irresponsible young man, a chorus girl, and of course a butler, not Jeeves (Wodehouse hadn't created him yet!) but the ancient 'Keeling', who has more worldly wisdom than anybody.
