Last in the series of the award-winning sketch show from the writer of Double Acts.

John Finnemore presents the last episode of this seventh series of his award-winning sketch show, joined by his regular ensemble cast of Margaret Cabourn-Smith, Simon Kane, Lawry Lewin and Carrie Quinlan.

So, whether you're listening accidentally or not, this episode will sound the same: you'll learn about the downsides of adopting animals, and hear a modern shanty that anyone who works in an office will identify with.

John Finnemore's Souvenir Programme was described by The Radio Times as "the best sketch show in years, on television or radio", and by The Daily Telegraph as "funny enough to make even the surliest cat laugh". Already the winner of a BBC Audio Drama Award and a Radio Academy Silver Award, John was named the 2016 Radio Broadcaster of the Year by the Broadcasting Press Guild for his work on Souvenir Programme.
