The Archers

Tuesday, 7 June

Brian assures relieved Kate that Spiritual Home won’t be taken into account in the negotiation with Chris over Home Farm’s assets. Kate ministers to her convalescing dad, offering him various remedial strategies none of which he’s finding the least bit attractive. He seeks some peace in the eco office, where Stella finds him contemplating the future of Berrow. She scolds him gently, and he accuses her of being in league with his hyper attentive family. When he persists with work talk she becomes seriously agitated, explaining that her father worked himself into an early grave, and that she’d been there when he had a heart attack. She doesn’t want history to repeat itself with Brian. Brian softens, and agrees that maybe he should take some time out. Stella suggests he takes Kate up on her offer of yoga sessions. He agrees – as long as there isn’t a leotard involved. Ruth’s grateful to Beth for sharing her expertise at the cattle auction. Beth’s more than happy to oblige for her boyfriend’s mum. Ruth’s bought thirty five milkers and half a dozen in-calf heifers, well within budget thanks to Beth. Vince stands Beth and Ben a champagne dinner at a posh restaurant. Vince is full of jolly anecdotes, and Beth teases him fondly. A call from hysterical Steph halts proceedings. She turns up at the restaurant and informs them Liam’s had an affair, and she’s walked out. Can she stay with Vince? Her dad assures her she’ll have everything she needs. All she has to do is ask.
