"

With her father in hospital and the family farm in crisis, things just aren't going well for Janice. Add to this a blocked gateway, an infuriating jogger and 300 sheep to send to slaughter and Janice is pushed to her very limits - truly a woman on the Edge.

This Woman's Hour drama from Bafta-winning writer Neil McKay is set on the famous Alderley Edge sandstone escarpment and unfolds over one long day in late summer. When a body is discovered in a cave, the area is sealed off and all witnesses herded together in the Wizard Pub. One by one they are called to give their version of events to Detective Sergeant Lynch. But when you're on the edge, nothing is quite as it seems. An unlikely group including a jogger, some juveniles, a deranged farmer, and a Geography teacher are rounded up and questioned. Who fired the shotgun? Why is young Leah covered in blood? And who is responsible for the dead body?
