Recorded for Training Purposes, Series 4

For those of you who do the open-door radio comedy thing, Recorded for Training Purposes have just put out the writers' brief for series 4. You can find it on the BBC Writersroom site here.

The ever-fabulous Jasop Arnopp went from a member of the dirty unwashed sketch-submitting masses last series, to a member of the commissioned writing team this series, so this particular open door can definitely lead to the opening of further doors. (I didn't get anything in last series, but I did make it onto the producer's "does not suck" list. I'm hoping to go one better this time and achieve "is actively any good" status.)

Pencils ready. And... begin.
