Alan in Action

Radio cassette
Knowing Me, Knowing You (The Radio series) Alan Partridge in fine form. Most of us have seen (and cringed at) the TV series, but have you heard the pre-telly Radio 4 series?

If not, get the audio CDs or cassettes! Six episodes of the BBC radio chat show are available, and these were aired way before Alan made it to telly. In our opinion,
much better than the TV series. Click for details of the BBC Radio 4 series on audio CD.

Free Audiobooks from AudibleThe radio series are also available for download to your PC or MP3 player directly from Audible.co.uk.
