Stephen Mangan and Claire Skinner star in all four series of the popular BBC Radio 4 comedy drama. Bill and Bella meet for lunch once a month and talk about everything - except how much they love each other.
There exists in all of us a song waiting to be sung which is as heart-stopping and vertiginous as the peak of the cathedral. That is the meaning of this quiet city, where the spire soars into the blue, where rivers and stories weave into one another, where lives intertwine. One quiet evening in Salisbury, the peace is shattered by a serious car crash. At that moment, five lives collide - a flower seller, a schoolboy, an army wife, a security guard, a widower - all facing their own personal disasters.
