Wodehouse Restoratives

In this time of hardship there can be few better restoratives than regular readings of P.G.wodehouse, the undoubted master of the comic bon mot.  Happily for Wodehouse aficionados - and they are surely legion - the BBC has spent at least some of its licence fee wisely in the commissioning of a new Sunday night series based on the Blandings novels, ranking alongside the immortal Jeeves as one of Wodehouse's outstanding serial creations.  Blandings begins this Sunday.  Meanwhile, the BBC's Hugh Schofield has been given to musing about P.G.Wodehouse's French connection here.
