Concrete cow s1e1 part 1 of 2

Concrete Cow is a BBC Radio 4 audience sketch show created by James Cary. Two series were broadcast in 2002 and 2003. It was mainly written by Cary with Adam Bromley, the producer. It also contained material from Robin Ince, Stuart Barker and Jon Holmes. Sally Hawkins and Catherine Shepherd also contributed to the scripts. It was an ideas-driven piece, with few returning characters. Some examples of material include two aggressive teenagers entering a burned-out wardrobe in Peckham to menace Mr Tumnus, an evil genius demanding a bespoke font for his countdown clock and a medieval finance company offering to consolidate all your tithes into one seasonal pig. Series one starred Robert Webb, Sally Hawkins, Olivia Colman, Steve Kynman and Chris Pavlo. The scripts were edited by Steve Punt. Series two starred Webb, Catherine Shepherd, Kynman, Pavlo and Beth Chalmers. The scripts were edited by James Cary.
