THE new, daily drama FLYING VISITS (RADIO 4, 10.45AM, 7.45PM), by Charlotte Bogard Macleod, stars Claire Rushbrook (pictured) as Hayleigh, a care worker.

STANLEY LANE has been a printer for 60 years, taking huge pride in the quality of his work. He runs his letterpress firm in Stroud, Gloucestershire, producing beautifully printed books for specialist publishers. The technology Stanley uses is 19th-century; the results are superb. As Stanley’s 81st birthday approaches, THE UNTOLD (RADIO 4, 11AM) hears about his quest to find someone to take over the
highly skilled business that has been his life’s work.
THE old lags Barry Cryer, Tim Brooke-Taylor and Graeme Garden are joined by Jo Brand for the last in the current series of radio’s
funniest panel show, I’M SORRY I HAVEN’T A CLUE (RADIO 4, 6.30PM). We hear more news from the miserable Hamish and Dougal, plus a particularly skilful round of radio charades. New entries for the Uxbridge English Dictionary include Hispanic: a fear of snakes and Jeopardy: a bit like a jeopard. Very silly, and very funny.
