Those Hard To Reach Places is a comedy by first-time radio writer Daniel Thurman, in which a widowed former mayor hires a "nude" cleaner in a moment of madness.

For more than six years, since the death of his wife, former mayor Mr Fawcett has had the devoted Mrs Randle cleaning for him. Lonely and struggling with retirement, he spots a card in a shop window and books a visit from Rita, a self-styled "nude cleaner".

Embarrassed and stretched for cash, Fawcett tries to ease out Mrs Randle, but she proves more than a little difficult to shift. Unknown to him, prim and proper Mrs Randle and brash and crude Rita are in a battle for supremacy. There's only room for one cleaner, nude or otherwise, in this house. Fawcett is slowly but surely losing control of his vacuum cleaner and his life.
