Full cast dramatisations of five Maeve Binchy short stories, specially adapted for BBC Radio 4's Woman's Hour. Ireland is neither cursed with snakes nor blessed with nightingale- s, and the characters in Maeve Binchy's fiction occupy the same ground - ordinary people somewhere in the middle. These five short stories feature modern Irishwomen emerging from a culture in which they knew their place into a newer, middle ground, which is a bit more hazardous but also more rewarding. No Nightingales, No Snakes stars Niamh Cusack. Other cast members include Harry Towb, Sam Dale and Kate Binchy. Stories include The Answering Machine, Decisions at Sea, The Stepson, By the Time We Get to Clifden, The Night People Came in for Something that Was No Trouble.
