Trivia

"The Bowmans" was a parody of long-running BBC Radio soap "The Archers". The character of Joshua was a reference to Walter Gabriel, who performed the same function in The Archers as Joshua does in The Bowmans. The Archers, which began regular broadcasts on the BBC Home Service in 1951, continues on BBC Radio 4 to the present day. See more »
