THE ARCHERS: THE WORLD´S LONGEST-RUNNING RADIO SOAP OPERA (1B2)

If you’re a complete beginner to “The Archers”, this instant introduction is for you.

First of all, what exactly is The Archers? Well, it’s a radio soap opera set in the fictional English village of Ambridge. It aims to provide essential drama from the heart of the country.

So what does that mean you’ll be hearing? Ambridge is a twenty-first century village, with all the pressures of modern rural life. You’ll become involved in the characters’ personal and business struggles, their love affairs and all sorts of village activities from saving the local shop to the annual fete. There are plenty of lighter moments too.

The Archers has been specially recognised at the BBC Audio Drama Awards for the impact of its ground-breaking Helen and Rob storyline.

The programme received the award for Outstanding Contribution to Radio Drama. The BBC said the continuing drama, which is now in its 67th year, received the prize for “raising significant social awareness of the problem of domestic abuse and coercive control whilst telling a compelling dramatic story over three years”.
