Description

Broadcast initially as Safety Catch, all twelve episodes of the BBC Radio 4 comedy of modern morality set in the world of arms dealingSimon McGrath is a nice chap - he donates blood, he recycles, he cares about the world. He just happens to work as an arms dealer - or a 'defence and security equipment system solutions broker' as he prefers to call it. It wasn't planned, and what he really wants is to pursue is his career in electronic music, but until that takes off he'll stay where he is. After all, he has to pay his mortgage like everyone else...In these three series, Simon goes to extreme lengths to prove to everyone just how guilt-ridden he feels about doing the job he does, from considering becoming a whistleblower to deciding to quit when he has to sell uniforms to child soldiers. As he tries to salve his conscience, he decides to do his job really badly (only to find out that he secretly loves it), attempts to gain redundancy (but gets a promotion instead) and wonders whether he should seek forgiveness (but surely he has absolutely nothing to be forgiven for - does he?)Meanwhile, his personal life is proving equally problematic, as he and his needy girlfriend Anna contemplate having a baby, survive a visit from her parents and try to find reasons why they still love each other...Written by Laurence Howarth and John Finnemore, this controversial black comedy stars Darren Boyd (Killing Eve) as Simon and Joanna Page (Gavin & Stacey) as Anna.Written by Laurence Howarth and John Finnemore (Series 1, Episode 3)Produced by Dawn EllisFirst broadcast BBC Radio 4: 26 September-17 October 2007, (Series 1), 1-22 April 2009 (Series 2), 5-26 November 2010 (Series 3)CastSimon McGrath........................Darren BoydAnna Grieg........................Joanna PageBoris Kemal........................Lewis MacLeodJudith McGrath........................Sarah SmartAngela McGrath........................Brigit ForsythMr Njai........................Ben OnwukweSophie........................Catherine ShepherdOl........................Nicholas BoultonMr Kendall........................John DougallMadeleine Turnbull........................Rachel AtkinsPeter/Guide........................Gus BrownParamedic/Roger/Dave........................Philip FoxMarcus/Richard........................Dan MershJulius........................Nyasha HatendiCharles........................John SchwabGlenys/Sarah........................Di BotcherHugh/Vicar........................Mike HaywardWith Beth Chalmers
