Bernard Cribbins - national treasure
BBC Radio 4 often has gems - programmes that are not much trailed, certainly not hyped, but just a joy to listen to - or thought-provoking, or intensely-moving.

This week and last they had two half-hour programmes on the lovely Bernard Cribbins - Donna's Grandfather in DW, but so, so much more to anyone who has grown up in Britain at any time over the last half-century or so. They are on "Listen again", and I think that means it's available outside the UK too. Try it - a real national treasure and what makes him so, with a lot of celebrities explaining why he is so awesome, including David Tennant.

I love him and what is great is so does Daniel, an avid watcher of Old Jack's Boat! He will be a part of Dan's childhood just as he was a part of mine.
