Ed Reardon's Week - Series 2
Series 2 (6 Episodes), first broadcast Dec 2005/Jan 2006 on BBC Radio 4.
Ed Reardon's Week was voted Best Radio Programme by the Broadcasting Press Guild at their 32nd Annual Television and Radio Awards.
"Does it seem that the media is 'run by idiots, lying charlatans and moronic twelve year-olds who should've been drowned at birth in a bucket of raw sewage'? It is according to the diary of Ed Reardon, author, pipesmoker, consummate fare-dodger and master of the abusive email (which he usually manages to un-send before it pollutes cyberspace).
Welcome to the world of Ed Reardon, writer and liver of life at the cutting edge. Above The Cutting Edge, to be accurate, a one-bedroom flat over a hairdresser's in Berkhamsted, where Ed has lived on his own since his wife and grown-up kids left him, forcing the sale of the London home.
Ed's first (and to date last) published novel Who Would Fardels Bear? was bought by Hollywood, relocated from Oldham to San Francisco and turned into a Sally Field movie ('Sister Mom') in the mid-70s. It was directed by Ed's best mate Jaz Milvane whose career has since gone stratospheric. Ed's broke up on re-entry; with the exception of his episode of Tenko in 1982, the royalties of which now amount to about £17 a year - but are anxiously awaited nonetheless.
He may have only one pair of trousers and a seven-figure Amazon sales ranking but no writer knows more about stealing his agent's stationery... and as a freeloader Ed Reardon is the acknowledged leader of his profession.
