Adam Trotman: ‘I tech reviewed hundreds of these …Often the quality was so bad It was impossible to pass them. I really got into it though I must say.’

Russell Parker: ‘I used to love this for its awfulness Adam, back when I first saw it as a student, knowing now what I do, I can only imagine (fairly and appropriately badly) what it must’ve been like to tech rev.’

Adam Cooke: ‘I hadn’t joined the BBC at that time but I do remember watching this on TV… I think it was on a Sunday morning. I just remember thinking how brilliantly weird the whole series was. As a young 16 year old at the time I enjoyed the whole ‘fantasy’ aspect of the show.’

Dharmesh Rajput: ‘It was a B R Chopra production that APU showed – I wasn’t working there then though. It’s one of two ancient Sanskrit epics in Hinduism. There’s lots of philosophy contained in it – though I’ve yet to read / watch it properly. However, I do remember I had just started working at BBC Asian Network and had my uher training when the cast of the series did a live show at the NEC and were hosted at a tea by The Lord Mayor. I interviewed the cast – including in Hindi which I didn’t speak fluently – and my first pieces were broadcast on radio.’
