Storyline

When Sir Geoffrey gives the hospital its first radio service he should have known better than to let Dick help run it as he incorporates local advertisers - to line his own pockets. MacKenzie's drunken on-air rants and Gascoigne's tedious play about Louis Pasteur also drive the patients to watching old films on TV, but when Nurse Reynolds unwittingly chats up Duncan on air, it gives birth to a saucy soap opera with the patients clamouring for more.

"Koch is a German!"

St.Swithins gets its very own radio service. Loftus unwisely entrusts Waring and Stuart-Clark with the task of making it a success.

Dick sees it as a golden opportunity to make a quick buck by incorporating local business ads into his 'History Of St.Swithins' broadcasts, while Gascoigne writes a melodramatic play about Louis Pasteur. MacKenzie provides sound effects. It sounds like a recipe for disaster - and is. The patients get bored and watch old George Formby films on television.

Until Nurse Sheila Reynolds saves the day by trying to chat up Duncan on air. Their saucy banter makes 'Radio St.Swithins' a massive hit. Loftus requests further instalments...

Pretty amusing episode, enlivened by David Kelly of 'Robin's Nest' fame as a patient, and Alison King as the Duncan-fixated Nurse Sheila Reynolds, ( first introduced in 'When A Body Meets A Body' ), clearly in the mould of 'Dr.Mary Bingham' from 'Doctor In Charge'.

Funniest moment - a drunken MacKenzie rambling on air about his marital problems!
