What about Spike Milligans intimate, soul-bearing account of his upbringing in colonial India, Plain Tales from the Raj?

The early evening, of course, yields The Archers. And finally theres Book at Bedtime and Sailing By.An addictive mix of history, biography, anecdote and occasional useless fact, this is the perfect audiobook for Radio 4 aficionados.
