Don't Miss North By Northamptonshire

Don't Miss North By Northamptonshire

Katherine Jakeways' North by Northamptonshire has got off to a great start, so make sure you don't miss it. 

Katherine Jakeways' debut radio series will air on BBC Radio 4 every Wednesday from June 16th to July 7th at 11.30 am featuring an all star cast & narrated by Sheila Hancock.
Northamptonshire: the middle of the country. Average population, average economy, average size. Not the north. Not East Anglia. Not really even the Midlands. No identity. Until now, as Katherine Jakeways introduces BBC Radio 4 to middle England, in case the two needed introduction...
North By Northamptonshire welcomes careful listeners to Wadenbrook - a small market town, loved by its inhabitants and missed by no-one except the A1(M).  As the people of Wadenbrook live their lives, they reveal themselves, form friendships, laugh, forget to laugh, get trapped under shopping trolleys, teach dogs to dance and wish there was more than one bus an hour to Peterborough.
The characters are played by an incredible cast including: Penelope Wilton, Felicity Montagu, Mackenzie Crook, Kevin Eldon and Katherine Jakeways.  The series is narrated by Sheila Hancock.

With loads of impressive previews including
'funny and touching.'  from The Independent
***** from the Daily Mail 
and 'The laughs are cruel, but the monsters of suburbia are curiously sympathetic, and the characters so well drawn and well played that this could run and run' from Time Out.
