The Archers: Behind The Scenes


The Archers is the world’s longest running broadcast drama and is a British institution. It entertains five million people a week and makes national and international headlines.

Join us at our exciting Q&A session with Keri Davies, scriptwriter, and two cast members – Kim Durham (pictured), who plays Matt Crawford, and Felicity Finch, who plays Ruth Archer. These three speakers will give you a fun and informative look behind the scenes. They will be discussing how the stories are planned, researched and written, what it’s like to play a long-running character, and will be letting us in on some of the secrets of the studio (like how they make those smoochy kissing sounds)!
