Fantastic Links Gareth and I especially like the flattery! Said gripping radio drama by myself is called Weekend Warriors and will now have more hope of getting produced thanks to your informative links. Bummer about the P.C but that won't stop you writing those fab scripts like Ambulance and Nightguard. Enough ego massaging, I'm off!


Welcome to the Blogo-sphere Louise!
