Flight of the Conchords was a radio series broadcast on BBC Radio 2 in 2005, starring the New Zealand musical comedy duo Flight of the Conchords. A 3-CD set containing all the episodes was released in 2006 by the BBC. Each disc consisted of 2 episodes.

At the 2006 Sony Radio Academy Awards, the series won bronze in the Comedy Award.[2] The later HBO television series of the same name was a spin-off from this radio series.[3]

The series was repeated on BBC Radio 4 Extra in August 2011.[4]

A Director's Cut release was planned by BBC, which was set to include "outtakes and full-length songs from the duo", and was initially set to be released on 13 November 2008 and was available for pre-order from the BBC Shop.[5] However, the release date was then pushed back to 31 December 2009[6] and later 31 December 2010.[7] The title has not been released, and the BBC Shop eventually removed their product page for the item.
