Grandparents

Episode 3 of 4

Poet and entertainer Pam Ayres with sketches about how to get your grandchild to sleep, following instructions when babysitting, and misbehaving as a grandparent.

Much-loved poet and entertainer Pam Ayres returns to BBC Radio 4 with four new shows packed with poems, sketches and anecdotes that will make you laugh out loud.

Today's theme is 'Grandparents'.

Today there are sketches about how to get your grandchild to sleep, following instructions when babysitting, and misbehaving as a grandparent. Also Pam performs poems including 'Granny Got Whiskers' about how little grandchildren can sometimes be too honest; 'My Little Grandson' about boasting about your new grandchild, and 'Unfinished' about never finishing those baby's bootees that you meant to knit.

Over the course of this series, Pam also regales the audience with stories and poems on the subjects of getting older but not giving in, about holidays and about home.

She is joined for the sketches by actors Felicity Montagu (Lynn in I'm Alan Partridge) and Geoffrey Whitehead (Not Going Out, Still Open All Hours).
