The writer and star of the multi-award winning sketch show John Finnemore's Souvenir Programme and the sitcom Cabin Pressure has written six brand new standalone half-hour comedies to premier on Radio 4 this autumn.

Each one is a self-contained story, with its own cast, and all strictly adhere to the overarching theme of 'ideas John has had for this series'.

They range from hot-desking office workers attempting to conduct a romance at the rate of four minutes a day to a band of explorers beginning to wonder if they'll ever reach Australia's Great Inland Sea.

Others feature characters ranging from a charming burglar to a charmless bath saleswoman; from the worst teacher of English Conversation in contemporary Germany to the best imaginer of tigers in 1950s Britain. As John says, "if there's one thing they all have in common... I'll be very surprised. And a bit annoyed."
