DANILO’S Q&A WITH THE ARCHERS SCRIPTWRITER KERI DAVIES

Born in Treherbert, Wales, Keri Davies is a producer and writer, best known for his work on BBC radio soap opera The Archers. Keri was formerly the show’s senior producer but since 2003, he has been a scriptwriter.

Keri is also involved in putting together the ever-popular Official The Archers Calendar! As well as sourcing some of the smaller Archers portrait photos, Keri’s main role is to write the copy that accompanies each month – which among other things means adapting and testing the recipes! 😉

We asked Keri the following questions:

1. How long have you been a scriptwriter for The Archers?

I’ve written scripts for The Archers since 2003. Before that I was the programme’s Senior Producer and subsequently its Web Producer. I’ve been working on the programme in various capacities since 1992.

2. Who is your favourite character?

This is a really difficult one, as there are so many wonderful characters in The Archers. I do like to write comedy, so it’s great to have characters that can carry that off, like Jazzer McCreary, Brian Aldridge, Lynda Snell, Susan Carter, Eddie Grundy, Joe Grundy… I could go on – but I won’t.

3. What has been your favourite plotline?

I’m going to go back to well before I worked on The Archers, to my early days as a listener. Young Shula Archer (now Hebden-Lloyd) and her boyfriend Nigel Pargetter got up to all sorts of scrapes – including Nigel illegally driving away a car because he thought it was Shula’s. It was great fun to listen to, and it started me on a habit which became a lifetime’s pleasure – and a quarter century of work, too.

4. What is the best part of your job?

Knowing that what I do affects people – it moves them, cheers them up – and sometimes, as with our recent story of domestic abuse, it can shed a light on real-life issues.

5. What do you like to do when you’re not working on The Archers?

Music and dancing. I sing in a choir, play drums and various other instruments and am always up for a dance. Recently I’ve been learning swing dancing.
