Radio Times Father Daughter Mayor

In today's Radio Times (UK).
TV comedy-drama writer Paul Dornan turns his hand to radio for the first time with this warm-hearted seaside yarn about disenfranchised youth.

Unemployed graduate Hannah returns to sleepy Westport. She needs a job, but the only one going is as mayor, and her dad Geoff - a wily, loveable but typically complacent local councillor - is tipped to get that.

But then an issue arises that greatly affects Westport's young people. It's the closure of the Dome, their scruffy end-of-pier social centre. Geoff refuses to include the closure issue in his mayoral campaign. His assistant has persuaded him that the core voters are middle-aged, with very different priorities!

Now Hannah, who loves her Dad, but is desperate for a job, is faced with a dilemma. Knowing it might ruin Geoff's career and hard-won reputation, should she run for the job of mayor against him?

Producer/ Peter Kavanagh for the BBC
