Series 2 of the BBC Radio 4 narrative comedy featuring Beauty Oolonga's adventures as a careworker, starring Jocelyn Jee Esien.
'Beauty of Britain' breaks the embarrassed silence about what happens to us when we get old and start to lose our faculties. It shows the process in all its chaotic tragi-comedy but it does so from the point of view of a migrant worker, Beauty, whose Zimbabwean Shona background has taught her to respect age. Beauty sees Britain at its best, its worst and also sometimes without its clothes on running the wrong way down the M6 with a toy dog shouting 'Come on!'
In this second series, Beauty's employer, the Featherdown Agency, sends her to provide care for those who need it - and some who don't, but all of whom have relatives with guilty consciences.
In Episode Five, 'Mission Command', Beauty struggles with an irascible gentleman and the Featherdown office struggles with Social Services' new pilot scheme for elder care in which the 'Assessment exercises are based on the battle principles of General von Moltke of the Prussian Army.'
Jocelyn Jee Esien heads up a starry cast that includes Oscar James and Morwenna Banks. Written by Christopher Douglas and Nicola Sanderson, it is produced by Tilusha Ghelani. The signature music 'I Don't Feel No Way Tired' and all the music for the series was recorded with The West End Gospel Choir.
