Extracts from Neil's favourites: Mary Poppins Comes Back by P.L. Travers; a delightfully funny short play, Fair Mistress Dorothy by A.A. Milne, performed by the whole cast; Charles Dickens' gruesome 'Captain Murderer' story from The Uncommercial Traveller and the poem Differences of Opinion by Wendy Cope. Alan Moore's song Me & Dorothy Parker performed by Mitch Benn, a clip of BBC radio series The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams and two ukulele songs round off the show.
