When Dawn French steps back into the Reverend Geraldine Granger’s shoes and leaves behind the Radio Dibley microphone for a day on 29 March at 7:45am, she will offer her alternative Thought For The Day, written especially for Radio 4’s Character Invasion by Richard Curtis.
Thought for the Day has been running on Radio 4 each Monday to Saturday morning since 1970. Normally delivered by a religious leader, it is described as offering a “..unique reflection from a faith perspective on topical issues and news events.”
While we’re on the subject of ‘the Vicar’ and Richard Curtis, check out this bit of Vicar Of Dibley greatness from Comic Relief 2013 with Homeland star Damian Lewis. It sees Geraldine and the parishioners heading to London to try and help ensure the Church approves the ordination of female bishops.
Those outside the Radio 4 signal, don’t despair. There are apps in the iTunes store that you can download and listen to BBC Radio. Just type in ‘BBC Radio’, download and enjoy.
