The ancient Vietnamese life in which Tung was raised is being torn apart. It is not enough to work hard and grow rice anymore. Now every farmer in Mai Dong has to pick a side: the French or the communists. Intelligence, humility and graft made Tung's father Que an honorable figure in Mai Dong. His values ensured the family's survival through famine and flood. They will not protect him against the communists, who need class-enemy victims for their land reform campaign.
Here is the complete first series of Little Britain from BBC Radio 4, plus the pilot episode and over 25 minutes of never-heard-before sketches and outtakes. The Little Britain radio series won a Sony Award when it first appeared on radio, and has since gone on to become a comedy phenomenon. Now, available for the first time, are the original pilot and all four episodes of the original radio series, complete and uncut.
Here is the complete second series of Matt Lucas and David Walliams' BBC Radio 4 Sony Award-winning comedy sketch show featuring Tom Baker.
A little girl wakes up to find she is a statue in a room in a grand house with only a tiger rug for company. Is anything the tiger says to be trusted? Is he a real tiger, a fake or a magic carpet? Is she really just a statue or is she bewitched - was she once turned to stone? Will she ever come to life? By turns comical and lugubrious, the tiger gives the little girl plenty of versions of the truth, but how will she decide what is true, and will it set her free?
Written together with friend and journalist Boyd Hilton, the audiobook follows a year in the lives of Matt Lucas and David Walliams in every unfiltered detail: the good, the bad, the mundane and the meaningful. It is a year that includes writing, rehearsing, filming, Live8, going to America, and undertaking a mammoth 100-date, seven-month tour where Little Britain goes in search of Great Britain.
Highlights from the third TV series also include Lou and Andy getting into an awful kerfuffle over boob jobs and slow-drying patios, the Prime Minister and Sebastian exchanging favours, Dafydd canvassing support in the local Bi Elections, and Emily and Florence going on their (very small) hen night.
Little Britain is without doubt the biggest contemporary audio series in the UK this year. In 2005 there will be a third TV Series on BBC3 and BBC1; transmission dates are likely to be Autumn 2005. Little Britain is a phenomena and will be the hottest ticket in 2005. To tie in with the new TV Series, sell out tour, and the Christmas gift market, we are releasing a best of TV soundtrack featuring sketches and other material not used on the Complete Radio Series.
