“Sex in the shower was three years ago, darling”

On Thursday, Radio 4 won the Sony Radio Station of the Year award. I’m a huge fan of the station and think it well deserves its prize. I laughed, though, on Friday morning when Helen Boaden, Controller of Radio 4, was interviewed by Sarah Montague on the Today programme. Boaden replied to an accusation about Radio 4 including more sex, with particular reference to a sex scene in the Archers a few years ago, by saying “sex in the shower was three years ago, darling”.
