Fags, Mags and Bags, Series 5 Episode 6 of 6

Fifth series of the hit Radio 4 series, with more shop-based shenanigans and over the counter philosophy courtesy of Ramesh Mahju and his trusty sidekick Dave.

The staff of Fags, Mags and Bags continue their tireless quest to bring nice-price custard creams and cans of coke with Arabic writing on them to an ungrateful nation. Ramesh Mahju has built the business up over 30 years and loves the art of the shop. However, he does apply the "low return" rules of the shop to all other aspects of his life. Then there are Ramesh's sons Sanjay and Alok, both surly and not keen on the old school approach to shopkeeping, but Ramesh is keen to pass all his worldly wisdom onto them whether they like it or not!

In this final episode of the series, Ramesh decides it's time to ponder retirement from the corner shop game, but has to decide who will carry on his shop legacy and take over the Fags, Mags and Bags empire.
