When The Pips Stop
A poetic and playful love song to Radio 4 by Oliver Emanuel.
By Oliver Emanuel
It’s 2:13pm on a remote Scottish island where the only inhabitants are two sisters.
One of them hasn’t spoken to the other for over two years.
They’re listening to The Archers, and then Radio 4 goes off-air.
Now they have to learn to live together and without the one thing they each cherish: Radio 4.
