Archer - The Archers - Netflix

The Archers is the world's longest-running radio soap opera. The British production, which has aired over 18,600 episodes, is broadcast on Radio 4, the BBC's main spoken-word channel. Originally billed as an everyday story of country folk, it is now described as a contemporary drama in a rural setting. Five pilot episodes were aired in 1950 and the first episode was broadcast nationally on 1 January 1951. A significant show in British popular culture, and with over five million listeners, it is Radio 4's most listened-to non-news programme, With over one million listeners via the internet, the programme holds the record for BBC Radio online listening figures. Partly established with the aim towards educating farmers following World War II, The Archers soon became a popular source of entertainment for the population at large, attracting nine million listeners by 1953.

Tony Hancock starred in the Galton and Simpson spoof-edition titled “The Bowmans” in one episode of BBC television's Hancock. Ned Sherrin produced a short 1973 film called The Cobblers of Umbridge. The cast included Joan Sims, Lance Percival, Roy Kinnear, Derek Griffiths and John Fortune. John Finnemore's Souvenir Programme has parodied The Archers with its recurring “The Archers Accidentally” sketches; the sketches claim to portray The Archers the way it sounds to people who only listen to the show inadvertently. The radio series of Dead Ringers has frequently parodied characters from The Archers, including a special edition. The subtitle was parodied by Bill Tidy in his long-running cartoon of The Cloggies, “an Everyday Saga in the Life of Clog Dancing Folk”, which ran in the satirical magazine Private Eye, and later in The Listener.
