Hut 33 returns

Not only is Hut 33 one of the very few radio shows set in a shedlike atmosphere, it's also very funny, and it's back on the airwaves a week today on BBC Radio 4 at 11.30am. I'd heartily recommend tuning in as the first series was a hoot and the cast, including Robert Bathurst and Olivia Colman, are excellent. The action is set in a hut in Bletchley Park during World War II where three codebreakers are breaking codes. Previously on Hut 33...:
"Archie, the stroppy Geordie who wants a socialist revolution must now work with Charles, the ultra-conversative snob who rejected him from Oxford because he didn't know how to use a fish knife. Gordon, the child prodigy, wants to be taken seriously, which is difficult in short trousers and tries vainly to act as peace-maker. Minka, their Polish secretary, provides much need efficiency, although she is worryingly keen on extreme violence as the solution to all problems."
