It's Wind in the Willows Part II

Radio 4 is to broadcast a sequel to the children's classic The Wind in the Willows. A Change in the Willows, by Ian Buchan, will star Stephen Mangan as Toad, Andrew Sachs as Badger, Tim McInnerny as Toad and Julian Rhind-Tutt as Ratty.

The new version will run in the Saturday Play slot in May. Kenneth Grahame's original was first dramatised for BBC radio in 1955.
