Overview

A collection of some of the best stories from over 60 years of the nation's favourite radio drama.
The Archers, like life, is made of moments: marriages and births, loves and losses, triumphs and disasters. It has been the soundtrack of our lives for over six decades, from stooking corn with Dan Archer in the 1950s to the tragic death of Nigel Pargetter in 2011.

We know the characters of Ambridge — from much-loved Phil and Jill Archer and the irrepressible Grundys to wayward Brian Aldridge — like we know close friends. This book is their tribute.

The Ambridge Chronicles relives some of the defining moments in The Archers history, delving into the rich archive of its scripts, to celebrate the highs and lows that have made the world's longest running radio serial so treasured.
