About Cabin Pressure Fans
Hello and welcome to cabinpressurefans.co.uk, a site dedicated to the wonderful BBC Radio 4 sitcom, Cabin Pressure. Written by the clearly talented and hilarious John Finnemore, Cabin Pressure (at the time of writing) has recently completed its third series, meaning its place in the Radio 4 calendar is well established and is on the radar(!) of most Radio 4 listeners.
With such a high standard of script writing, excellent casting and enormously talented actors, I, as many others have been, was instantly hooked. Its original, intelligent style has hit a note with many people, finding a niche in the sitcom world that was crying out to be filled. And its got it just right. I am not an avid Radio 4 listener, I’m under 30 don’t you know, I don’t wear tweed, read the Telegraph or even own a labrador, Cabin Pressure reaches out to anyone with a love of classic British comedy, delivered in a modern and unconventional setting. I would encourage anyone to listen. Start here with series 1. Bet you love it.
What this site aims to achieve
As a fan, I decided to build this site purely as a place where other followers of the show can come and express their appreciation. Personally I wanted to show gratitude to the writer and production team and try to give the show the recognition I believe it deserves, so please leave comments where you can to encourage others to do the same. This site has no ‘end goal’ as such, but does aim to show the BBC that we are here as fans of the show, that we want continued production and, who knows? Maybe one day we’ll see Cabin Pressure on our TV screens.
