All about Chain Gang

Do you still play consequences at Christmas time? You know - the game where someone starts a story and it's up to the next person to carry it on? 


Well we started a story on Saturday 5th October, and asked for your suggestions for what should happen in the next episode. 


You can hear Chain Gang between the other programmes here on 4 extra, but to be sure of catching it, tune in on Saturday afternoons at 10 past one, download the programmes or listen on the iPlayer.  We’ll be playing the whole drama in one go on Saturday 14th December at 1.10pm.
