The BBC has contacted Audlem Online to say that the episode of Dom's On the Case featuring many people in the village is to be broadcast again on Monday 22nd December at 7.00pm on BBC1. As this is the evening hundreds will be singing carols around the giant Christmas tree, it will be a night worth setting the recorders.

When first shown in October, the programme was broadcast at 9.15 in the morning. There were comments that it was such a good programme – it examined the different availability of NHS drugs depending on where you lived in Britain – that it deserved another airing. It seems that the BBC's schedulers agree.

Shabnam Grewal, who produced the programme said she would like to thank the many residents, particularly the members of the 5As, who put so much effort into making the programme such a success.

The village chemist's shop also had an extensive role in the show. Pharmacist Alison Ralph explained how patients can often avoid paying £7.10 a prescription by buying an alternative, cheaper drug over the counter. Her advice saved one young woman, who was planning her wedding, over £300, a figure she will be able to save year after year.
