Episode 6 of 6

Toe-curling accounts of professional blunders, the meaning of hackneyed, the sadness of Chas and Dave and Peter Curran's horror at his tally of 7,000 interviews.

Two men in darkness, sharing a bunk bed and a stream of semi-consciousness about family, relationships, work and imagined life.

We all crave a place where our mind and body are not applied to a particular task. The nearest faraway place from daily life. Somewhere for drifting and lighting upon strange thoughts which don't have to be shooed into context, but which can be followed like balloons escaping onto the air. Late at night, in the dark and in a bunk bed, the restless mind can wander.

After an acclaimed reception by The Independent, The Sunday Telegraph, The Observer and Radio 4 listeners, Bunk Bed returns with its late night stream of semi-concsciousness.

In this episode, toe-curling accounts of professional blunders, the meaning of hackneyed, writing Alan Partridge, the sadness of Chas and Dave and Peter Curran's horror at his tally of 7,000 interviews.

Elsewhere in the series, Patrick and Peter deal with Therapy, children's happiness, JRR Tolkien, Babycham, Aldous Huxley, and correction fluid - among a ragbag of subjects.
