Episode 2 of 4 of the BBC Radio 4 comedy-drama series 'Turf Wars', Nigel Planner stars in 'An Incident at the Border', Kieran Lynn's comedy about boundaries that are both territorial and personal. Directed by Peter Kavanagh and originally broadcast 16 October 2011.

Arthur (Joe Kloska) and Olivia (Leah Brotherhead), take in the sun in their local park on a beautiful summer's day. Olivia is reading a newspaper article on their country's new-found independence. It seems that no-one knows quite what the terms are for the secession. Arthur couldn't care less. He's apolitical and just enjoying watching the ducks.

Suddenly a soldier (Nigel Planer) arrives, dragging a tape across the ground, marking out the new border. He barges between the two young lovers. Now one is on one side of the new border, and another is on the other!

The lover's attempt to cross is now met with a stun-gun jolt from the guard, who's been trained to be suspicious of everyone who isn't from 'this country' and this includes Arthur!

How can our lovers be reunited?

Starring Nigel Planer as Reiver, Leah Brotherhead as Olivia and Joseph Kloska as Arthur.
