Anne Edyvean, radio producer

Anne has done some varied work for radio; in 2004 she had done 29 single plays, 11 serials, one six-part feature series, 2 single features, 3 full-length audio cassettes, and about 350 episodes of Westway. Most recently she has done Loyal Women by Gary Mitchell (Jan 04, WS), Honest Dreams, a feature on C. Day Lewis (April 04 R4) and 7th Dimension- eight 15-minute dramas by new writers (Oct 07, BBC7).

Since then, Anne has done more Westway episodes (as editor) and a number of other productions; mostly for World Service but some for Radio 4 - plays and dramatised features, and a Woman's Hour serial. Anne also works for television.

The Adventures of John and Tony (4 episodes, beginning 7 sep 99)
By John Hegley. Four comic journeys in which John and his best friend Tony search for happiness, love, the meaning of life... and glasses. With John Hegley and Simon Munnery. Director Anne Edyvean.

1: `A Tale of Two Tenting'. John and Tony go camping with Herman Hessian - the dog made out of an old potato sack. They take their bikes and the scoutmaster's manual, which seems to be having a strange effect on Tony.

2: `The Quest for the Holy Spectacles'. John discovers that Jesus wore glasses, but whatever happened to them? John and Tony travel to Glastonbury and Loch Ness, but nowhere is quite as surprising as the cellar of Harry's Caff.

3: `The Total Hotal Experience'. Set in a hotel boasting a full range of activities, including a fancy-dress party and haggis hurling. John just wants to play dominoes, but amongst the guests is a woman from his past - with her potatoes.

4: `The Hiking Holiday'. John and Tony stay in sinister hotels and are pursued by monks from even more sinister monasteries. Tony falls hopelessly in love - this turns out to be the holiday with all the sex, violence and overseas travel. (BBC publicity)

-notes from ep. 5:
1940. A group of Danzig schoolboys spend the summer swimming out to the wreck in the harbour. While they lie around on the exposed hull, scraping off and chewing gull droppings, Malhke, with his huge Adam's apple and devotion to the Virgin, dives inside the ship to find and bring back whatever he can.

Mahlke seems destined to be one of life's clowns, but soon he will do something that amazes everyone who knows him.
