The BBC is filming in the village for a current affairs programme on prescription charges. As regular readers of Audlem Online, indeed much of the country that watches TV or read newspapers will know, while many English residents pay £7.10 a prescription, residents of Wales get them free. While the prices were raised in England in April, they were reduced by £2 in Scotland where their Parliament is also moving towards free prescriptions in the future.
