The Worriers

Radio 4
late 1998/early 1999 (six programmes)

A novel idea — the programme’s stars, Toby Longworth and Niall Ashdown, run the first-ever professional worrying consultancy, dedicated to fretting about other people’s problems so they don’t have to — was used to wrap up this standard compendium of sketches about the problems and pitfalls of modern society, performed by Rachel Atkins, Simon Greenall, Lewis MacLeod and Debra Stephenson.  A multiplicity of writers contributed, including Anthony Bryan, Rhodri Crooks, Phil Davey, Dan Evans, Steve Gribbin, Tom Jamieson, Pat Jewel and Steve Sinicola.
