The Older Woman, a comedy-drama series starring ZoŽ and originally broadcast by the BBC in 1993, will be repeated on BBC Radio 4 Extra from next week.
In this six-part series, ZoŽ plays Jane Callaghan, the former English teacher of local journalist Roy Hitchcock (played by Martin Clunes). Roy, prone to daydreaming, is eager to win Jane's affections, despite having previously been her pupil!
The Older Woman is written by Tony Bagley. Toyah Willcox also stars, playing one of Roy's colleagues. The first episode will be broadcast on 23 May at 7am on BBC Radio 4 Extra; it will then be repeated at 5.30pm and the following day at 5.30am.
With thanks to Janet.

ZoŽ will appear in the new series of The Kumars at No. 42, several years after her first appearance on the comedy chat show.
Originally broadcast on the BBC from 2001-6, The Kumars at No. 42 will return to our TV screens for a brand new series on Sky1 HD. Speaking to the BBC about the show's return, The Kumars at No. 42's co-creator and star Sanjeev Bhaskar commented: 'We've got these sketches that we do in the show now'. He added that 'Hugh Jackman has done one for us. ZoŽ Wanamaker's done one for us as well.'
A broadcast date for the new series has not yet been announced, but the BBC's article notes that it is due to be shown later this year.
