The Archers

Monday, 6 June

Ben’s reluctant to leave for uni. He gets the result of a theoretical assessment today and he’s not confident. Beth assures him he’ll have smashed it. David explains the cow missed from their delivery last week is arriving today, having recovered from a bruised leg. He asks Beth if she’d be prepared to give Ruth some advice on the auctioneers handling tomorrow’s dispersal sale. Beth would be happy to help. David gets a message from Vince; he’s coming over this afternoon. Beth laughs that there’s no escape from her dad. Later when Vince is at Brookfield, Ben announces he came second in the group for his assessment. Vince reckons it calls for a celebration at the Bull. But the drinks are on Beth, who’s just had a bonus from Rodway and Watson. Ben tells her she’d done amazingly, and Vince asserts they both have. He wants to take them all out for a meal. He’s alone this week – it would have been Nigel’s birthday, and he wants to give Elizabeth and the family space. Beth thinks that’s really sweet of her dad. She’s glad they managed to make up. Jim helps Jazzer pack. He finds some remarkable items, and is suitably diplomatic. They find a history book Jim lent him, which Jim lets him keep. It gets emotional as Jazzer gives him a card, declaring Jim’s the nearest thing to a dad he’s ever had. They laugh – Jazzer’s only moving across the Green! Jim suggests Jazzer keeps a key to Greenacres, and they share a long hug, before Jazzer leaves.
