I'm not good at this, in not sure where to post things but I was just having an idle moment in the kitchen, thinking about the Cameo when the program I was listening to in the radio, The Archers, mentioned the Camino! Is that a sign?

Of course. It is a sign that even BBC Radio 4 can sometimes be part of the caminoverse.
I missed that episode but I’ll assume Pat Archer is off in search of her soul again: at least until I catch the Sunday omnibus 😉

I'll leave you to enjoy the reveal on Sunday morning.

Between the Archers and Dr Who (tho the latter was interrupted) the UK seems to have a talent for long running programmes....do you suppose we might hope for a visit from a Doctor? 😉

I heard that episode too and smiled to myself.
Not a sign for me, I returned in May from walking on the Portuguese Camino .

For non UK readers, The Archers is (supposedly) the world's longest-running radio serial. It's an acquired taste.
I live in Ontario, Canada. I have been listening to the Archers for over 20 years. I have just finished the Camino Francis and on my way to Finisterre. When I was walking through busy noisy areas, where there were lots of young people talking and playing their music, I put my headphones on and listened to the Archers. I haven’t listened to that episode yet. Look forward to it. Thanks for mentioning it.

It was set up in the post war years to help ecucate farmers in the latest farming ideas and I formation. It was good back then as it had genuine agricultural advisors and I remember going out with my Dad to check all our water troughs for liver fluke snails after the subject was raised on The Archers. Lately it has become a radio soap opera, it's still very popular but no longer my cup of tea. I say bring back Zebedee Tring the council ditch clearer!

I still follow it sporadically, but a lot of the old characters - Nelson and Walter Gabriel, Joe Grundy etc, who made t both bucolic and interesting, have died off. It has done some interesting topics in recent years: rural racial prejudice and the coercive control of women for example.

Is the Archers " an everyday story of country folk" still happening? I remember listening to it as a child! Every Sunday way back in the 50's and 60's. Life seemed much simpler then!

Some if the stories are good and a must listen, other can be tedious.

Must admit I have never listened to it but no doubting it’s an instituton with a very loyal listenership ! What with this and someone meeting Jasper Carrott on the Camino it’s been quite a week!
