The Archers: The Duchess of Cornwall visits Ambridge

So did you listen to The Archers today?

It was a special episode with Camilla, The Duchess of Cornwall making a cameo appearance on-air.

If you've never listened to The Archers, it's never too late to start!

The Archers is a very popular long-running British soap opera broadcast on BBC Radio 4. Recently, the show celebrated their 60th anniversary with a special episode that was supposed to shock everyone in Ambridge (the fictional English village) to the core. Well, it probably did shock the characters but, in my opinion, the episode had been so over-hyped that I thought it was a bit of a damp squib.

Anyway, The Archers is an entertaining radio show and I enjoy listening to it fairly regularly. I'm not a true addict though because I don't listen to every single episode.

Here's a fun introduction to The Archers by Stephen Fry:
About The Archers in three minutes


  1. I feel like I am missing something. I have never heard of The Archers. We must not have it here in the states.

  2. Hi Nellie. The Archers is not very well-known in the States so I'm not surprised you've never heard of it. I think a lot of Anglophiles probably listen to it though or indeed, British expats.
