Radio 2
1997 (six episodes)

The scripts to the original series of this popular and long-running ITV comedy, written by Peter Tilbury and first broadcast in 1979, were dusted off and re-recorded for radio eighteen years later with an all-new cast.  Stephen Tompkinson took the role of laconic professional layabout James Shelley, originally played by Hywel Bennett, and Gina McKee appeared as his girlfriend Fran.
