Right Ho, Jeeves
A BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation starring Michael Hordern as Jeeves and Richard Briers as Wooster.
Mayhem has broken out at Brinkley Court... Gussie Fink-Nottle has fallen in love with Madeline Bassett. Angela has argued with young Tuppy and the air is full of mangled fragments of engagement. Aunt Dahlia has lost a fortune at the gaming tables in Cannes and dare not tell Uncle Tom. And all the while the spectre of the Market Snodsbury Grammar School prize-giving hangs over the assembled company.
It's a situation which cries out for Jeeves you would think. But Bertie is fed up with the assumption that he is merely an addendum to his personal attendant. There are more brains in the Wooster household than just Jeeves, you know! Stand back - Bertram Wooster is on the case!
