As we edge closer to Christmas, we thought it worth seeing a gentle British comedy all about showing kind heartedness to others. In ‘The Lady In The Van’, Alan Bennett (Alex Jennings) lets an old lady (Maggie Smith) and her van stay in his front drive, which of course leads to all kinds of silliness.
We quite liked it, so join us in the East London Radio studio for the 38th time to find out why! We’ll also let you know when’s best to use the term ‘I’ve done a Dame Maggie in a plastic bag’, and we’ll share with you our reasoning behind the theory that Jar Jar Binks is almost definitely a Sith Lord. Can J. J. Abrams prove us right, or has the Gungan had his day? All of this alongside music by John Williams and George Fenton!
