It's That Song Again

When the Dog Dies, Series 3 Episode 5 of 6

Duration:
30 minutes
First broadcast:
Friday 08 February 2013

Ronnie Corbett returns to Radio 4 for a third series of his popular sitcom by Ian Davidson and Peter Vincent.

Ronnie plays Sandy Hopper, who is growing old happily along with his dog Henry. His grown up children - both married to people Sandy doesn't approve of at all - would like him to move out of the family home so they can get their hands on their money earlier. But Sandy's not having this. He's not moving until the dog dies. And not just that, how can he move if he's got a lodger? His daughter is convinced that his too attractive lodger Dolores is after Sandy and his money.

Luckily, Sandy has three grandchildren and sometimes a friendly word, a kindly hand on the shoulder can really help a granddad in the twenty-first century. Man and dog together face a complicated world. There's every chance they'll make it more so.

Episode Five: It's That Song Again

Sandy is haunted by the song 'Green Grow the Rushes Oh' and recent events seem to match its verses. Is it all a countdown? What will happen when the song gets to "One"?
