The Archers

Wednesday, 23 February

Alice and Chris discuss plans for Martha’s birthday party – Alice wants to mark the occasion with a party for family and friends, but Chris thinks a small tea will do. Later Brian tells Alice if she wants a big first birthday for her daughter, she has every right to organise one. So Alice suggests to Chris that they have two parties and Chris reluctantly agrees. Neil and Hannah commiserate over the breeding sows – they hate seeing healthy animals going to waste. Neil says things have never seemed so uncertain. Justin tells Martyn that The Stables is a good investment, but the pigs are eating his money at Berrow. When Martyn points out that Brian thinks the market might pick up, Justin retorts that Berrow is haemorrhaging money, with animals being fed up just to be slaughtered. They need to get out and close it down. And if the board doesn’t agree, he will sell his shares in Borchester land and leave Berrow to sink without him. Later, Martyn tells Brian what Justin thinks and that Brian needs to convince him that Berrow has a future. Brian asks for a couple of weeks to get his case together so he can expose Justin as a man without vision. Then he’ll call an emergency board meeting to force a discussion on Berrow’s future. Martyn tells Brian to keep this top secret – they don’t want the staff getting wind of it.
