About the book

Is there a cure for farmer’s lung – and would Joe Grundy take it if he could? Who are Meriel, Jean Paul, Baggy and Mercedes? Which Ambridge couple fell in love to the tune of a Mr Whippy ice cream van? It’s been sixty years since the familiar dum-di-dum-di-dum-di-dum of ‘Barwick Green’ first brought The Archers to our airwaves, and in that time millions of listeners have followed the everyday lives of country folk in Ambridge. This new compendium, which brings together facts and trivia about characters, controversies and country customs in one handy volume, is sure to delight avid addicts and nervous newbies alike.
