Leading scholars combine a love of The Archers with their specialist subject areas, such as food, geography, social media and faith. This unusual and entertaining book blurs the line between fact and fiction. Archers’ fans may be relieved to hear that hours of listening to their daily dose of Ambridge is, in fact, valid academic research.
