THE LATE Roald Dahl (right) is greatly missed and Danny Champion of the World, featured in the Afternoon Play (2.15pm R4), rates among his best work. It is a funny and moving portrayal of the relationship between a father and his son. When Danny's Dad, played by Jack Dee, disappears in mysterious circumstances, his son commandeers an old Austin and drives off to rescue him.
