    Alternate Titles

    • Some episodes are known by other titles than the ones the BBC sometimes uses:
      • s05e06 - The Ghost Of McMuckle Manse - AKA - Ghost Story
      • Dick Whittington And His Wonderful Hat - AKA - Dick Cinderella
      • Greek Tragedy - AKA - Oedipus Rex And His Red Hot Moma
      • Tales From Shakespeare AKA Othello
      • And there's a regular problem about whether to include "The" or not.

    Duration

    • 30 Minutes

    Series Numbering

    • There were three pilot episodes before the series really started, Roger Wilmut says they're not series one, and if anyone should know he should, but the BBC lists then as the first short series. I'm going with the BBC because it makes adding the BBC7 repeats easier, and to be honest that's how most people view them.

    Trivia

    • Many of the episodes in circulation are transcription service versions; I'll try to list the sketches for the full programme and mark the items removed. It seems a lot of the BBC7 broadcasts are missing any sketches that are before the opening theme music and credits.
