REMARKS AS PREPARED – CHECK AGAINST DELIVERY
A few months ago I had a chance to visit the studios where one of the BBC's most popular dramas is made.
Love interest, family feuds, social commentary -- it's got nearly all of the features you'd expect to find in a soap opera made here or in the UK. Indeed it's based on "The Archers," the BBC's famous domestic radio drama which charts life in and around the fictional English town of Ambridge.
Yet this drama takes place not in Worcestershire but in Afghanistan.
