Subject: BS: The Archers UK Soap
From: John MacKenzie
Date: 15 Aug 03 - 02:31 PM

As a means of giving my age away, I will admit to having listened to The Archers almost from the beginning. However at this moment in time I am totally pissed off with this programme. Why are nearly all the male characters wimps and/or pratts? Or jokes!! Why does nothing good ever happen to the Grundys? Why do they drag obvious storylines out for months? What does it have to do with its' tag line "An everyday story of country folk"? It is almost totally irrelevant to todays farming and farmers. Insofar as it reflects any part of a farmers existance, that existance is relevant only to English farmers, and bears little or no relation to the life of a farmer in Scotland, or the north of England. I know that time moves on etc., but this programme is so far outside its' remit that it is in danger of becoming totalty irrelevant.

Ah well, Clive met up with Leo in chokey, and Leo has promised Clive a ficticious fortune if Clive can ruin nasty Alistair, who, after all, ran off with their business after Leo had been caught doing a line or two of poets Persil.

Personally, I never forgave Alistair for executing Doctor Richard, who was the only one who really made Saint Shula wriggle.

Clive Horabin (should that ebe "Horrorbin"?) is Susan Carter's ne'er-do-well brother, who disappeared into the murky underworld kens of the Big Smoke (London to the innocent and ignorant). Last time he was around she got six months for sheltering him. This time she should murder hiom and bury his body under the patio. I think The Archers is the only Soap where nobody's done this yet. (They did it for real in Walsall, where I came from!)

I still think mytheory is in with a chance; Clive was probably sacrificing chickens or goats (or horses) to Mammon.

A little programme called With great Pleasure, on Radio4, in which an old or favoured actor is allowed to reminisce about his or her life and loves. Sometimes a boring programme, sometimes an uproarious romp. Charles fell somewhere between the two.

Not JUST a fictional radio drama! It's the longest running soap in the world. In February it reaches it's 56th birthday. One of the original actors is still in it. Lots of English people have grown up with it from hearing it when their Mum's and Dad's (and grandparents) listened to it. Some of the characters are the great grandchildren of the originals. It's a soap with history! And something of a British institution.

Anyway I was in The Bull this afternoon when Joe starts on me about the ghost of Willow Farm. "Joe", I says, "Give it a rest. I've just come in for a quiet pint and I've got you in one ear and Linda in the other, trying to get me to play Grumpy in the panto. I'm just not interested Joe, go and get your pigs in" (little does he know me and a mate will be setting them free later in the week tee-hee). "Have you finished your chores for the day IWTATBM?" says Joe. "What chores", says I?" "A pint of Shires" says Joe. Fell for that old one. He's a crafty old devil that Joe Grundy, always strutting around the village with a microphone in his hand and a story in the other. Why do they all have microphones around here? So, I buys him a pint and, oh, I've got to go 'cos I've just seen David and I want to chat to him about a rumour that Susan's spreading. Can't say any more, said too much already.

They've never given me a microphone.

About the bet

All the Archers characters (with the possible exceptions of Jazzer and Matt who are mere outlines) are now essentially female. Listen to David and Brian talking about Siobahn (or any other of the male characters discussing females / family matters) for proof.

However the overtly female characters are modern women so I'd guess that Ruth will be forced to kick right over the traces, just to show that women can be as irresponsible as men. The scriptwriters will also force the kids to be deleriously happy living in a garret with Ruth and Sam and David will stoically accept the position, seeking consolation in his worthy stewardship of the Brookfield land and in his Parish Council work.

He'll probably achieve closure by planting a tree in memory of his happy years with Ruth.

Pity the writers didn't have the b**ls to pursue a similar line with Mike and Clarrie when they had the chance.

Schantieman Steve - I did pop the question, in an earlier post, of whether Sam knew Ruth wasn't all there. I've now heard Phil suggest she needs a tonic, so I hope she gets a large Gordons to go with it.

A letter in today's Guardian has reminded me of something I'd quite forgotten - and I think it's the reason I've never been too keen on The Archers:

"You extol the Archers (In praise of, November 8). I haven't forgiven them for the "death" of Dick Barton, Special Agent."

What the writer meant is the slot on the radio which they gave to The Archers was the one which had previously been reserved for the exploits of Dick Barton. It was like taking away Doctor Who and replacing it with Come Dancing.

Good grief Topsie! That question really asks for a naughty answer!

I don't think they have a bull at Brookfield...certainly not a friesian anyway. There may be a hereford. If you use your own bull, after a couple of years you are putting him on his own daughters which is not good breeding policy at all. With AI you can choose the right bull for a particular cow, vary the breeds etc. Of course this is all a load of old bull......

I thought that Sam's farewell address to the Herd was really touching, until that tart Ruth came into the cowshed and broke the magical bond between mand and beasts. God, she's hard.

She should have got Alister to put Sam to sleep (God knows Alister has that effect on me). Instead, poor Sam will now have to rove the airwaves alone, turning up occasionally to beg at the doors of miserable hovels like Start the Week and You and Yours. I don't know where he'll find work - I can't think of any other herd on the air. You can't call walk-on parts in Thomas Hardy serialisations a life can you?

As I write here it's just been on R4 that a listener found Ruth and Sam's failed tryst to be an "anticlimax".

Suggestions for next shocking plotline?

I know my granfer (dairy farmer for about 50years) had an arrangement with 3 farms in the area... they'd all swap their bulls around every other year or so, to strengthen the herds. After several rotations, the bull would end up in the butchers across the road and we'd invariably end up having a large piece of him for Christmas dinner.

That's what REAL farming folk do... don't recall any of these shenannigans going on in the milking parlour.... too much bloody work to do!

Want to know how to make Sid and Jolene go into hysterics? Ask them if you can hold a folk club in The Bull on Saturday night. Bloomin' embarrassing it was. "Saturday night? Saturday night?" they said, and then it was the hysterics. Said they hadn't had such a good laugh in ages and pulled me a pint of Shires for my sense of humour. When they realised I was serious they said they could do Tuesday no problem, or at a push, Thursday. (Sid said if he'd known I was serious at the start he'd have charged me for the pint). Can you manage any of these dates MBSLynne? If so perhaps we could get a list of Mudcat performers prepared to do a gig on the cheap (very cheap) to get us started.

David flirted mildly and when confronted with the prospect of physical action, stepped back. Ruth made a profound and repeated emotional committment with a certain prospect of bedroom action before drawing back. David enjoyed a single stolen kiss, whilst Sam's grubby prints are goodness knows where. No real equivalence there I'm afraid.

The subtext of the plotline seems to be that the envelope for "moral" behaviour for men is much smaller than that for women.

It doesn't seem fair.

AND she had an affair with Debbie's father in fairly recent years. However, I can understand her point of view. In this instance I feel really sorry for Brian who, with all his shortcomings has always been a pretty good father. To take on someone else's children is not an easy thing but he does appear to consider the two step-children as his own. No surprise then, that he should care about little Rory. The whole crux of the matter is that at some point before long, there will be a little boy of, what, five? with no mother. He needs his father. Interesting to see what Debbie's reaction will be.

I think that over the last five years or so the scriptwriters have come up with some brilliant stories. At times I've been hardly able to wait for the next installment. They must be pretty good or why are we a)listening to it and b) spending time discussing it.

What worries me is that Nigel was getting his wine made by the nasty man who was causing Tom problems with his sausage van last year, and now the same chap seems to be advising Ruth and David about their new hedge. OK, I know he is appearing under different names, but I reckon they are just pseudonyms. I wouldn't trust him with my wine.

I don't think people act out of character often. In fact I've been impressed in the past by how3 they manage over 55 years to make people's characters consistent. Lots of people in the other world (ie Not Borsetshire) will suddenly do something unpredicted when something happens that knocks them out of their usual channel.

I don't think so Keith. She'd felt threatened by David's 'friendship' with Sophie. He was taking very little notice of her and she was already low on self-esteen, possibly still carrying over from her mastectomy. She's also reaching a 'certain age' where people start to realize that time is creeping on and they aren't as young as they were (sorry about the cliches there!) And there, telling her how wonderful she was, was this hunky cowman. I think it would be in character for almost any woman to succumb. She did so fairly reluctantly and with a lot of wringing of hands, which was totally in character, and even then backed out at the last minute

Terri, for many years "The Archers' Workshop" took place on Sunday morning on the campsite. It used to be a great way to start Sunday. There were, in the early days, probably 20 people at them and they had different names. One year it was called "The Grundys and their opressors". It used to take place on camp Derby at the bottom of the field though later migrated up to Steward's village when camp Derby became sparser. One year there was a shelter between the tents called "The Grace Archer memorial Hall". It bore a sign "No admission after Midnight". We even used to have an Archers' quiz. Should we resurect (How the bloody hell do you spell that??) it?

Amy is black as well, so it would be overdoing it if she was black. But there is something I'm sure. Susan was leaning over backwards NOT to be racist/disablist etc. Maybe Nik only has one arm, and that's why she was struggling with the pushchair - or she could be Chinese AND only have one arm.

Now we're limbering up for the first anniversary of Nigel's ill-advised teeter along the ridge tiles, I thought it was high time this gem was returned to the top of the charts.

Wasn't that a storming performance by Sharern, mother of Koyloi and the yet-to-be-unveiled Rich the other night? Quite how Koyloi turned out to be such a charming young lady is a mystery, spawned from loins of aggravated-manslaughterer Cloive Horrobin, but we'll give that to the nurture-over-nature brigade and the steady stepfatherhood of the equally-yet-to-be-unveiled Eamon.

And just while I'm getting a year's worth of Ambridge conspiracy theories off me chest, who agrees with me that the Bridge Farm salmonella disaster was in fact caused by Sewzerne, and not that poor 'dirty woman' Clarroi? Another sleeper, that one, mark my words....

So is Tom about to be "outed" as a folkie? Has there been any hint of this in the past? (I'm an irregular listener).

In fact, the only other Ambridge folkie I recall (if you don't count Eddie and Jolene's country music) was also a Tom - Tom Forrest. Coincdence? Or is there a secret agenda here?

Kathryn Tickell unmistakeably piping in the background of this afternoon's episode, which will have been a repeat of last night's. I was only half-listening - sounded like it was set at a village fair or something.

Was Ms Tickell actually supposed to have been there, or were they playing a record through the PA? It wasn'r just someone who sounded like her - it was definitley her.

Top marks to topsie- are you on the scriptwriting team? :)
I thought Vicky was going to have something nasty- and I'm shocked at Adam and Pavel!


It'll either be a Down syndrome or miscarriage storyline I imagine, since we can't have any straightforward happy stories any more on the Archers.

I do think the writing has improved in the last couple of weeks- have they got rid of the new writers who wrote such out-of-character rubbish recently?

Rusty Dobro - I reckon the singer was probably Tom Forrest, played by Bob Arnold, who grew up in Oxfordshire and was heard singing quite a few times (including "The Village Pump")over the years. I think John Heydon hoped to get him to the National Festival one year, but he was a bit too frail by then...

A couple more predictions:

1. Kirstie decides she can't bring herself to play Maid Marian and is replaced by . . . Helen, who plays it so convincingly that it causes trouble between Rob and Jess.

2. (Maybe not just yet though) Ian reveals that he is Henry's father.

Do all the women in Ambridge have fingers that are all the same size?

Rob has had an engagement ring made for Helen, and got the size right by borrowing a ring, at random, from her dressing table. When Caroline got engaged a few years back it was the same story.
I am neither married nor engaged, so if someone took one of my rings, the only finger it would be guaranteed NOT to fit would be the ring finger on my left hand.

PS The first prediction above was wrong - but I'm still holding out for the second.
