An 'Ep' in the Country

The showbiz survivor finds himself the unwitting stooge in some spin for a popular TV soap actress. Stars Peter Jones. From July 1986.

The off-screen doings of TV soap opera stars are often more interesting than the actual programmes, particularly if you never watch the programme concerned.

British show business doyen, J Kingston Platt shares reminiscences drawn from the wealth and the poverty of his experience from the past 40 years.

Performed and written by Peter Jones.

Producer: Pete Atkin

First broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in July 1986
