Woof: Honest Mistakes At Home and Abroad

In this third series, Chris Neill continues his comedic exploration of affairs of the heart, the unexpected humiliations of ageing, and what bloody good luck it is that he has met his boyfriend, Rory.In earlier series, episodes revolved around the terrible blind date Chris was set up on, his fantasy French boyfriend inspired by a school textbook, making a fish pie for his dying neighbour, and his failure to write a novel. As ever, Chris remains entirely willing to expose himself to a late-night, possibly bed-bound, audience and this third series of Woof finds him recounting more autobiographical stories of his life in love, lust and mediocrity.In the first episode, we examine the trials of ageing. After a telephone conversation with his doctor, taken while admiring the sheer capacity of the Haribo aisle in a Hamburg supermarket, we join Chris walking away from diabetes.Written by Chris NeillStarring: Chris Neill, Isy Suttie and Martin HyderProducer: Steve DohertyA Giddy Goat production for BBC Radio 4Music used:Dance Away - The Bryan Ferry OrchestraThis Guy's In Love With You - Sachal Studios OrchestraDon't Think Twice It's Alright - Chris Thile & Brad MehldauIntroduction And Allegro For Harp, Flute, Clarinet And String Quartet (Ravel) - (Performance uncredited)Limbo Jazz - Duke Ellington and Coleman HawkinsGotta Get Up - Harry NilssonOur Day Will Come - Amy Winehouse
