Summary

Harry Hill stars as the Governor in this BBC Radio 4 prison-based sitcom

‘Properly funny’ Miranda Sawyer, The Observer

The Egg is Britain's remotest and highest-security prison, floating on a giant prehistoric egg in the middle of the ocean. Running the place is Governor Harry who, along with his trusty assistants Anne and Peter, does his best to keep the inmates under control – while dreaming of a transfer to the cushy Sparkles Open Prison.

In Series 1 he has to contend with government inspectors; mysteriously malfunctioning CCTV cameras; escaped prisoners; a demanding film star; a new, tough screw and a pair of mating whales attacking the Egg.

Series 2 sees Harry and the team striking oil and pitching a new invention to Dragon’s Den, while Peter faces a conflict of interest when his brother arrives at the prison. Plus, Harry finds himself on hold to customer services; tries to cope with food shortages, and gets sweaty palms (and itchy fingers) when a self-destruct button is found on the Egg.

Created by Dan Maier, regular writer on Harry Hill’s TV Burpand co-writer with Charlie Brooker of A Touch of Cloth, this smart, surreal and superbly silly series stars Harry Hill as Governor Harry, with Karen Bartke as Anne and Marek Larwood as Peter. Guest stars include Gyles Brandreth as Prisoner Brandreth and Deborah Meaden and Evan Davis as themselves.
