Radio Active - The Complete First Series
Classic BBC radio comedy Radio Active was broadcast on BBC Radio 4 during the 1980s. The first episode was broadcast in 1980, and it ran for seven series. The show starred, among others, Angus Deayton, Geoffrey Perkins, Michael Fenton Stevens, Helen Atkinson-Wood and Philip Pope.
Based around a fictional radio station (described as "Britain's first national local radio station") and the programmes that it might transmit. Characters on the show were mostly named after pieces of sound equipment, including rising star Mike Flex (Perkins), aged fading star Mike Channel (Deayton), "children's favourite" "Uncle" Mike Stand (Stevens) and the food-obsessed Anna Daptor (Atkinson-Wood). Also on the station's staff were: the incomprehensible Nigel Pry (Pope), the incompetent hospital-radio trained Martin Brown (Stevens), brusque owner Sir Norman Tonsil (Deayton), Head of Religious Affairs The Right Reverend Reverend Wright (Deayton), who had a mail-order bride.
This 3 disc set contains the entire firs series.

If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
