1Thin Air

1Thin Air20110112

We not only live in the air, we live because of it. And air is about much more than just breathing. It is a transformer and a protector, though ultimately also a poison. At ground level, photosynthesis transforms air miraculously into solid food without which every creature on Earth would starve. It wraps our planet in a blanket of warmth. It brings us wind and rain and fire. It sustains our bodies and at the same time it burns them up, slowly, from the inside. The atmosphere provides a floating mirror for intercontinental radio signals and its outer layers soak up flares of deadly radiation from the Sun.

In the first episode, Gabrielle Walker experiences air - and weighs it. At ground level, the air is not as 'thin' as we might imagine. The Royal Albert Hall, in its day one of the largest volumes of air enclosed in a single span may seem to be full of nothing, but in fact, the air inside weighs 30 tons! On the other hand, not much further away than the next city, the air is so tenuous as to be unbreathable! That is in the 'up' direction. In between is a gaseous ocean in which Gabrielle takes a swim - floating on air, flying a glider and chasing the storm clouds that bring us our weather.

Producer: Martin Redfern.

. Gabrielle Walker explores our atmosphere, the ocean of air on which we all depend.

Granddad, father and son collide in this family sitcom set in a Birmingham record shop. Starring Lenny Henry.

Rudy Sharpe (Larrington Walker) owns an old record store in Birmingham - the last bastion of black music in Handsworth. When he suffers a 'heart attack', his neurotic, middle-aged, middle-class, divorcee son Adam (Lenny Henry) and 17-year-old grandson Richie (Joe Jacobs) come up from London to look after him.

Crammed together, living in the tiny flat above the shop, the three men are set to clash on a daily basis. While Rudy and Richie share a love of reggae and soul music, Adam is the odd one out - thanks to his tastes in classical music.

Written by Danny Robins and Dan Tetsell from an original idea by Lenny Henry. Produced by Lucy Armitage.

The first of four series originally broadcast on BBC Radio 4. From 2008.

32It's A Family Affair

32It's A Family Affair20110125

Rudy's Rare Records is a tiny down at heel old reggae record shop in Birmingham - one of a dying breed; a place with real soul, stacked with piles of vinyl, where the slogan is "if we don't have it - them don't mek it". It's owned by the charismatic, irrepressible Rudy Sharpe (Larrington Walker), reluctantly helped out by his long-suffering neurotic son Adam (Lenny Henry) and Handsworth's first, black, surly girly goth, Tasha (Natasha Godfrey).

Four years ago, Adam was forced to leave behind his life in London after being hit with divorce, redundancy and a nervous breakdown. Now he finds himself trapped in the confines of the dusty old record shop that his father has owned since the 1960s, both of them sharing the miniscule flat upstairs and adapting to occasional sightings of his 18 year old son, Richie (Joe Jacobs), who's also a constant source of worry for Adam.

Rudy's lifelong friend Clifton (Jeffery Kissoon) and grandson Richie get on like a house on fire, bonding over music, Guinness and rum, much to Adam's despair. Adam is the odd one out - a classical music fan in a reggae shop; a man who'd rather have a Waitrose sea bass than Jerk chicken.

With Rudy's chaotic approach of "if it ain't on the shelf, it's on the floor" clashing with Adam's post-breakdown need for calm and order, the shop becomes a battleground with both men wanting to run things the way they think it should be done. Thankfully, Adam's found himself a supportive ally in the form of Rudy's calm and canny, sixty-something girlfriend, Doreen (Claire Benedict).

Forced into finding a way to survive each other's company, Rudy's Rare Records celebrates an old man, a mid-life crisis man and a young man, bickering, snickering, breaking-up and making-up; all day, every day.

Adam hopes to bond with his dad Rudy, while they till the earth on an allotment.

Episode 3: Let It Grow

Adam is keen to take on an allotment and work the land with his Dad, Rudy. Rudy would prefer a patio.

Adam hopes to bond with his Dad, Rudy, whilst they till the earth together on an allotment. However, Rudy prefers to chill with his best friend Clifton and only takes an interest when they spot a rare and illegal plant growing in the greenhouse.

Father and son comedy set in the finest old-school record shop in Birmingham. Starring Lenny Henry, Larrington Walker and some terrific tunes.
Rudy's Rare Records is a tiny down at heel old reggae record shop in Birmingham - one of a dying breed; a place with real soul, stacked with piles of vinyl, where the slogan is "if we don't have it - them don't mek it". It's owned by the charismatic, irrepressible Rudy Sharpe (Larrington Walker), reluctantly helped out by his long-suffering neurotic son Adam (Lenny Henry) and Handsworth's first, black, surly girly goth, Tasha (Natasha Godfrey). Rudy has recently married his long-term love interest Doreen (Claire Benedict) which is leaving his best friend Clifton (Jeffery Kissoon) feeling left out.
