Recorded for Training Purposes: Radio 4

Went to hear/see the last two episodes in the current series of Recorded for Training Purposes being recorded (for broadcast rather than training purposes, I hope).

Good points: lots of jokes, not too many retakes (though us audience had to do two retakes when we didn’t perform right), no cats, bizarre heckle during one of the sketches about page numbers (I feel safe to say I will not hear another page number heckle in my life, even if I live to a human-number-of-years age) and best radio traffic reports ever. The humans with me got very excited about the joke about A4 and A3 paper sizes. I think they spend too much time near Risos.

Bad points: it was the last two of the series and there’s no podcast.

Web 2.0 touch: it’s an open mike kind of sketch show, with anyone having been invited via the internet to contribute sketches.
