The third episode of the series features the Little Girl with her views on what is or isn’t the Truth, Frank Hovis inviting us to support his new charity Hand Relief, the Reverend McMinn having a surprise encounter in his local minimart with a visiting President, the Tour Guide taking us on a trip round what may possibly be Edinburgh and Calum Gilhooley giving some unhelpful and unwelcome advice to a train ticket collector. There are songs about addiction to being healthy and the joys or otherwise of middle age, a look at the perils of box set bingeing and a brand new, same as all the rest police drama about a TV detective who is always off the case.
Members of the cast of Channel 4's hugely popular sketch show ‘Absolutely’ are back with their second series on BBC Radio 4. Pete Baikie, Morwenna Banks, Moray Hunter, Gordon Kennedy and John Sparkes are revisiting some of their much-loved sketch characters for four half hour shows, whilst also introducing some newcomers to the show.
In 2013, the group got back together for the “Sketchorama: Absolutely Special for BBC Radio 4” which subsequently won a BBC Audio Drama Award in the Best Live Scripted Comedy category. The first series of ‘The Absolutely Radio Show’ picked up a Celtic Media Award nomination for Best Radio Comedy.
