I'd like to think our show titles will always be chosen so as to right wrongs in society

Amazingly well done, and I enjoyed the show. I've got to ask though, do modern pilots still use machine guns?

No, British military warplanes haven't been fitted with them since about 1942, with rare exceptions. They just weren't effective against aircraft not built of wood, as less and less were.

The familiar term 'machine gun' was still used for many years in popular media like comic books and films even after their replacement cannon had made way for newer weapons in the 50s and 60s.

Hi - what a great show. Hope it makes it to the Beeb.

Meanwhile I am confused. There are two series S01 (2013) and S02 (2014).

However the episodes available on line at AudioBoo are only labelled:

First ep. damn-the-torpedoes (Meta data: 2014-04-4)
Second ep. damn-the-torpedoes-episode-2 (Meta data: 2014-08-8)

Are these from series S01 &/or S02?

Also do you have a catch up service to listen to ALL episodes incl. the pilot or are they available on CD?

Looking forwards to Series 03.

Hi Chris, thanks for the really positive remarks. Yes we'd love for it to make it to the BBC! But we're also delighted BFBS have been so supportive to commission the full series.

So to clarify, there is only one series and two episodes available at the moment - sorry for any confusion over that. It also wasn't helped by the fact that BFBS sometimes refer to the pilot show as episode one and the latest as episode two whereas I refer to the pilot show and the subsequent as Series 1 Episode One. Anyways, this is what has been made so far

- Pilot Show - broadcast
- Series 1 Episode 1 - broadcast
- Series 1 Episode 2 - has been written, awaiting recording. To be broadcast end of September.
- Series 1 Episode 3 - to be broadcast end of October
- Series 1 XMAS Special - to be broadcast XMAS.

My link above has both episodes so at the moment there is nothing missing from the online service. I'll make sure subsequent episodes remain available online.

Thank you. We need to complete Series One first. And then possibly a series two! But I appreciate the sentiment :)
