This the first episode of a new series, Alan Partridge tries his hand at producing a quality radio drama.
Alan hosts the first multimedia, radio-based book club in East Anglia. A charity drive encounters some difficulty when a reformed drug addict is a little too cheerful.
Alan invites folk musician Blackbird Goodbrook into the studio to sing some songs about bees, before getting real with a reformed young offender turned youth leader.
Alan is joined in the studio by an outspoken, controversial author who is promoting his latest publication.
Alan slows things down for a mellow edition of Mid Morning Matters, and enjoys a massage live on air.
In an uncharacteristically self-deprecating move, Alan decides to nominate himself as the Berk of the Week.
