I'd really recommend doing it in order. Radio version of Knowing Me, Knowing You, then the TV version, then I'm Alan Partridge, and on from there. It's really great seeing a whole career in order.

naw. I understand and appreciate this but think IAP1 to get the hooks in.

It's an extended clip from Anglian Lives,  a special that was shown on tv  at some point after the IAP S2 run. It's an extra on the IAP series 2 DVD.  The longer version is in the Unused Alan extras on the S2 DVD.

Disagreed! I'd start with KMKY radio, but make sure to follow it up with KKMKY to get the first glimpse of Alan's wider life.

Another great bit in that. When talking about food safty inspectors, "those people have more powers than the police, they'll shut you down like that *clicks fingers*". Sounds like something someone told him in a pub.

Been revisiting Partridge since the start of the new show.

Incidentally was watching the second episode of Knowing Me Knowing You, where at the end he gets knives thrown at him by David Schneider’s magician. Anyone notice right when the credits roll that Alan has wet himself?! Seen it so many times and is the first time I noticed it!

Ah right, cheers. I've got the IAP S2 DVD and I've watched the Anglian Lives doc but ages ago, I don't remember the studio scenes and don't think I ever watched the Anglian Lives extras. That'll teach me to skimp on my IAP S2 watching!

There's a bit in Welcome To The Places Of My Life where Alan visits a dry ski slope and meets a woman who says she doesn't ski herself, which makes Alan look troubled.

Well, that ski slope is in Ipswich, right at the end of the road my parents live on. My mother regular goes there too, and has never skied. She just likes the restaurant.

A bit too real.

They talk about it on the commentary track.  The device used to release the water messed up a little bit because the water is dispersed off to one side (more than it should be), which is why it's tricky to spot.

Great stuff with the Top Gear review.  Probably use power-sappeningly mundane and a long drawn-out affair on a weekly basis.  It's basically a riot.

My girlfriend has a 1.4 Corsa with about 70 horsepower, so I use those phrases on a daily basis.

Talking to someone about London and they mentioned “cockney”. I accidentally laughed in their face because:

Cockney is an area in London where criminals live. The police don't arrest them because - and they're very strict about this - they only slaughter their own

Then, can you call Bill Oddie and - That’s something else.
I always thought it was "Lynn, can you call Bill Oddie", which is funnier to me because it implies that he had no intention of actually firing her. It's more in-character.

Any time an Open Books with Martin Bryce quote gets in here - and it's seldom - I wonder why so seldom (though it isn't brilliant) so I've uploaded it to my OneDrive

It's great innit. I guess it gets overlooked because a lot of it is just him reading from the autobiography, but the presenter and the big lad in the audience are brilliant.  I'd quite like to read "Boy Of War".

100% correct.
