Popular poet Pam Ayres is joined in her poetry and sketch series by Felicity Montagu and Geoffrey Whitehead. This week they focus on Winter.

This week she looks at subjects including that magic combination of cold weather and broken boilers; the art of comparing ailments; she updates the Yuletide song The 12 Days of Christmas and, as we reach the end of the Winter season tells how to fan the dying flame of passion, come Valentine's Day.

Her poems this week include: Who's Had My Scissors, Ever Since I Had Me Op and Insomnia.

Produced by Claire Jones.
