A BBC Radio 4 comedy by Christopher Douglas ('Ed Reardon's Week') and Nicola Sanderson originally broadcast in October and November 2009. Beauty Olonga works as a carer for the Featherdown Agency and sees herself as an inspiration to other African girls hoping to achieve their goals in the land of semi-skimmed milk. We see Britain through her eyes - its overheated houses, its disappointing church services and its over-fondness for cauliflower cheese.
This complete first series contains the following episodes:
Also featured amongst the cast are Malcolm Tierney, Rosemary Leach, Anne Reid, Javone Prince, Pippa Haywood, Felicity Montagu, Geoffrey Palmer, Nicola Sanderson, Indira Joshi, Paul Sharma, Christopher Douglas and Dan Tetsell. With music by ‘The West End Gospel Choir’.
Who was your favorite character and why?
