Join us in the attic of an old rambling house for an afternoon of very funny tales written and introduced by Lynne Truss about life amongst the beams as the residents in the roof space including a subversive, head-banging Beetle, a stunning looking Butterfly with a feisty past, a fast-talking, fast-thinking acrobatic House Fly, a very bossy Queen Wasp, a soprano Bat and an Edible Dormouse who's convinced he's a Russian spy reveal what life is really like between the rafters and the floorboards.

This series is a follow-up to Tidal Talk From The Rockpool and Gossip From The Garden Pond.
