The second series of comedian Linda Smith’s radio show A Brief History of Timewasting starts next week. It is a sitcom that takes a wry view of everyday life in London’s East End.
Her targets for ridicule include a middle class family who aim to gentrify the area, and a bizarre idea for a musical from Andrew Lloyd Webber and Ben Elton. Her show is on Radio 4 every week starting on Tuesday of next week, at 6.30pm-7pm.
