Narrator: Gerry Hughes
Gerry Hughes was born in 1955 at Lyneham in Wiltshire. He joined Swindon Hospital Radio in 1974 where he created a soap called "Acrebury". He voiced all of the characters, many of which were inspired by local people that he had met in his first job at an agricultural company. It ran for eleven years. Gerry joined BBC Wiltshire Sound in 1988. And was asked to resurrect his soap in 1994 where it ran for six years, and 1,558 episodes, gaining him a Guinness World Record. His ability to voice characterise 85 plus voices lead him to perform characters in tapes of short stories and radio drop-ins. His amazing repertoire can also be tempered to the mood of each story.
