This is Night Hawk

Gah, this is driving me mad!

I've been watching loads of the excellent 'Allo 'Allo recently. When René and the gang are communicating with London via radio, a certain sound effect is used to indicate interference. That sound effect is also used somewhere in Dwarf... but I can't think for the life of me where.

Any ideas?


If I could hear that sound from 'Allo 'Allo I'd probably remember.

Indeed. Post us a copy and we'll tell you.

I'm going to take a wild guess and say it's from Kryten, when they first communicate with him.

I was just pissing by and thought I'd poop in.

'Allo 'Allo is indeed bloody good. I seem to have a vague memory of Frank Skinner showing a clip of it to Gene Wilder when he was on his show when it was still on the BBC, and saying it was a good example of typically British humour, and Gene Wilder said something like "What'd you say it's called? 'Hello, Hello'?"
Did that happen?

I was actually thinking of picking up Allo Allo...the first two series are region 1 now. But I bought Black Books today instead. Haven't watched it, but I'm excited to.

I take it Allo Allo is worth picking up, however? How many series were there?

I'll try and get a sound sample this week. I've never actually ripped stuff from DVD before - not properly, anyway.

As for 'Allo 'Allo - *definitely* worth getting. It had a long run of 9 series, totalling 85 episodes. Unusually, Series 5 had an American-style 26 episodes, due to a transatlantic deal with the BBC.


It's an incredible series. Very, very funny (but then, I like lots of extremely rude jokes aimed at a primetime audience) - but also unusual in that it is a serial sitcom - it has one continuous story running throughout the episodes, with the next episode often picking up at the exact moment where the last one left off. This gives the show a very unusual feel - but such a wonderful one.

It's going to be featured in the current series of Comedy Connections as well, I think.
