From the article: Jo Kendall had previously appeared in I'm Sorry, I'll Read That Again, and thus has the distinction of having appeared in not one but two acclaimed cult radio comedy shows.
Jo Kendall was also in The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy; she was Lady Cynthia Fitzmelton. That makes three acclaimed cult radio shows.

From the article: ...and some episodes have been broadcast in mono, suggesting that the original stereo masters were wiped
I think this should be edited out as, as far as I'm aware, everything on BBC7 is broadcast in mono, regardless of source. I thought I'd put that forth for discussion before I removed someone elses work, and found myself to be wrong. :)

Spaced1999, I checked some of BBC7's shows; the ones I checked have definite stereo separation (different tracks on each of the two channels.)

Ah, okay, cheers. Must just be the DAB broadcasts that are in mono. :)

- Yes, BBC7 is mono on DAB, but stereo on Freeview, satellite, etc. --Dr Greg 11:53, 18 April 2007 (UTC)
Often the reason why BBC7 omits some episodes from a series is not that the tapes are lost, but that the language is considered unsuitable for a modern audience. For example it might be considered racist or homophobic by modern standards. I can't say whether this reason applies to the Burkiss Way. --Dr Greg 11:53, 18 April 2007 (UTC)

BBC Radio 3..?
- No, see 2nd paragraph of article.-- 19:28, 21 November 2010 (UTC)
- The first run went out in Radio 4's late-night Friday comedy slot, and when Parliament returned after the summer recess, the slot was cut by 10 minutes to accommodate Today in Parliament. That happened to be the final week of The Burkiss Way's run. So yes, it really was shorter, and it wasn't some Marshall & Renwick messing-with-the-format gag, it was just bad BBC planning. --Walnuts go kapow (talk) 11:55, 4 May 2016 (UTC)
"some episodes have been broadcast in mono, suggesting the original stereo masters were wiped."
- I've noticed that in the BBC 7 broadcasts some early episodes were in mono but had stereo tape edits - noticeable because the tape is cut and rejoined at an angle so that the edits on the left and right channels are offset. This is always noticeable when listening on stereo headphones. I don't know why this is, but it suggests that the masters for these episodes were either recorded in mono or accidentally transferred to 2-channel mono before editing.

First appearance of "Eric Pode of Croydon"?
According to the article Eric Pode first appeared in series 2. However, he first appears in "Solve Murders the Burkiss Way", which is Lesson 4 of Series 1. Have I misinterpreted something somewhere?
What's the theme tune?
- It seems to have been a sped up version of "Brass Band Boogie": https://twitter.com/AndrewM2p4c/status/676356310892462080 JanTH (talk) 21:15, 8 July 2016 (UTC)
